Kabbalah is the mystical aspect of Judaism.

In biblical, metaphysical and practical terms, it formulates a personal teaching: the Attributes of the Divine, the nature of the universe and the destiny of man. At the centre of the Kabbalah is the Tree of Life, the image of Divine balance of which all existence is reflection. Kabbalists use this principle to perceive in everyday life the same dynamics whose exploration leads us to gaze back upon the Divine.
