Madonna sparks outrage with Kabbalah haven in London

Contact Music, USA • Friday June 10, 2005

Pop queen MADONNA has enraged residents of an exclusive area of London with her plans to open a Kabbalah drop-in centre on their doorstep.

The devout singer has splashed out $2.9 million (GBP1.6 million) on a swanky property near her own home in Regent’s Park, North London, and intends to create a haven where devotees of the mystical form of Judaism can meditate and chant.

But neighbours of the five-storey abode are furious at the prospect, and have slammed Madonna’s Kabbalah religion as a money-making “sect”.

ZEZE EL-DIB fumes, “We do not want any sect here. I do not want to interfere with anybody’s religious wishes but with Kabbalah we have to be suspicious.”

Another unnamed local says, “Having a Kabbalah centre would be totally inappropriate.

“It is a seriously manipulative sect which is very good at getting people’s money, including Madonna’s.”

Madonna, or ESTHER as she is known by fellow Kabbalists, has also purchased a property in New York for the same purpose – and is currently spending a staggering sum developing the centre.
