After the mercurial Madonna had started having an interest in Jewish mysticism, many famous people started joining the trend. Madonna’s involvement in the Jewish tradition was so deep in that she started several Kabbalah centers and invested a lot of funds into the study of ancient Jewish tradition. Hollywood stars that have taken an interest include Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Elizabeth Taylor and the late Marilyn Monroe. The main question behind the interest is why a worldwide celebrity who was born a non-Jew becomes fascinated with the Jewish mysticism to the height of regularly practicing it.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Sandra Bernhard explained that Kabbalah had removed more than eighty percent of chaos in her life. Paris Hilton also explained to the Great Britain’s More Magazine that after she had broken up with Nick Carter, she coped with the experience by going to the Los Angeles Kabbalah center. From the Kabbalah center website, they pride themselves on offering ancient wisdom that offers ways to achieve everlasting joy and self-fulfillment. This is an amazing system that will totally change the way we view life.
Sammy Davis explained to the Time Magazine that he did not join Kabbalah to deal with individual problems but to be part of a five thousand years’ worth of history and to hold on knowledge that is worth more than material wealth. Jews have used their thousands of years of expression and turned it into their strength. In 2006, Madonna narrated to the Time Magazine that the main precepts of the Kabbalah Center are that they were placed on earth to aid people. We are supposed to look for ways in which we can help people. Madonna identified her role by helping spread the presence of Kabbalah to the general public. Several people have ended up converting to Judaism.
