Ask the rabbi Halacha Mysticism and Ayin Hara

Kabbalah

Rabbi Ari ShvatIyyar 26, 5774
Question
Should everyday Jews be learning Kabbalah, even through Hassidut?
Answer
You ask a very subjective question which you should discuss with your local rabbi who knows “where you are” and your spiritual needs. In general the beauty of hassidut and recent rabbis like Rav Kook is that they bring kabbala to the contemporary masses in a beneficial way, without the possibly negative problems involved. Nevertheless, every individual needs a subjective plan in order to pace his development in the best way possible, balancing and harmonizing the ideal program of the gradual “basics and up”, with his specific spiritual needs; balancing the study of the practical do’s and don’ts together with the more spiritually understandable, motivating and uplifting philosophy, kabbala, mussar (ethics) and Tanach (Bible).
