The Jewish enlightenment movement, which in the nineteenth century became associated with religious reform, rejected the Kabbalah as an expression of the ignorance and superstition of the Middle Ages hoping to present Jewish worldviews instead around notions of rationalism and social ethics. ‘Some Aspects of Contemporary Kabbalah’ shows what the Kabbalah looks like now and how it came to its current position. With a few exceptions, Modern Jewish higher education institutions do not include the Kabbalah in their curricula. Since the 1970s, Kabbalah has become a central component of the fast-spreading New Age speculations and presentations. Its historical context is still hard to define. As the term is used today, it is a universal phenomenon.
