KABBALAH—A JEWISH SCIENTOLOGY?

Madonna and Kabbalah bracelet

Celebrities who have followed Madonna into the mystical world of Kabbalah, the Jewish religious organisation that follows a set of esoteric teachings, may now be having second thoughts.

The organisation, which adherents believe explains our true purpose in the universe and to which Madonna has reportedly donated $18 million, is currently the focus of a federal investigation into alleged income tax fraud and has also been hit with several civil lawsuits claiming that the Kabbalah center has pillaged the bank accounts of wealthy followers, according to a Newsweek investigation.

 It is unclear whether Madonna is aware of the extent of the questionable practices at the centre, or that some of the centre’s detractors have labelled it “Jewish Scientology.”



Celebrities recently photographed wearing Kabbalah bracelets include Ashton Kutcher, Mick Jagger, Lindsay Lohan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zac Efron and Yankee’s slugger Alex Rodriguez.
