Madonna supports local Kabbala initiative

The ancient Jewish mysticism of Kabbala is known for attracting celebrity devotees and on Thursday many of them will be out in force at the Tel Aviv Kabbalah Center’s ‘Spirituality for kids’ ceremony.

The event will feature a live broadcast from superstar Madonna via satellite from Europe, among a line-up of local political leaders, actors and artists.

‘Spirituality for Kids,’ is a ten-year-old intiative that aims to show children how to make the most of life.

Madonna has been an active member of the Kabbala community for some years. Her recent children’s book Mr Peabody’s Apples is inspired by a 300-year-old story taught to her by her Kabbala instructor, about choosing one’s words carefully so as not to cause harm to others.

Other celebrities slated to attend include actress Yael Abkasis, heart-throb actor Aki Avny, and his wife, the model and presenter Sandy Bar. They will join the parents and children, business leaders, political representatives and spiritual leaders in blessing the project and the work of the Kabbalah center.
