Kabbalah FAQ

There are different levels of serving and getting closer to the Creator. In the Jewish religion there are many types of prayers and physical acts that we are asked to accomplish regularly, as well as numerous Mitsvot – commandments. With a deeper understanding of the reasons and goals of all these actions, one could definitely ascend to a higher level of service and closeness to his Creator. However, this level can not be attained overnight and without a serious investment of time to study and reflecting on this profound knowledge.
