Belarus SIG #Belarus Kabbalah in 19th Century Belarus #belarus


Simpson, Joseph <JSimpson@...>
 

Dear Sig,

Lately I have been doing some study of the Kabbalistic tradition
within Judaism, and am curious to know how common was this tradition in the
jewish communities in 19th Belarus? Was it frowned upon by mainstream
Judaism in this time and era, or was it popular? Any input would be
appreciated. My great great grandfather's family was in Brest Litovsk during
that time.


Thanks,
