      To reveal or not to reveal? That is the question... at least for today. Because today's show is about the secrets of the Torah, about Jewish mysticism and Kabbalah. This is a field which is often misunderstood or neglected. Tune in and get to know how mystical teachings are important parts of Judaism and how mainstream Judaism reacts to mystical tendencies. What is a kabbalistic yeshiva? What are the main kabbalistic "schools "? Are you allowed to learn kabbalah if you are a women or less than forty years old?
       
      This week interview is with Rabbi Avraham Sutton, one of the most well-known transmitters of Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism in the English language. Plus, listen to a meditative, Sephardic, Kabbalistic song.
