Now Entering Russ's World
Following Madonna’s interest in traditional mysticism of the Jewish culture, many Hollywood’s big names followed suit. This pilgrimage into Jewish culture became rampant, after the American Popstar started her own Kabbalah Center to study the Jewish traditions.

She stated that it helped her deal with the separation. Read NY times news for Kabbalah .

Since time in memorial, Jews have been oppressed in political and social scopes. Owing to this, some celebrities, for instance; the late Sammy Davis, not only wanted to experience an inner strength through Kabbalah Center, but also wanted to be part of the Jewish evolution from marginalization.

They took to a stun tone, disowning the program as part of Judaism.
