Madonna, the former 'Material Girl,' has been promoted to the highest level the one can achieve without becoming an ordained minister according to the Kabbalah Church.

The singer, who is a staunch follower of the mystical Jewish religion, was promoted to an upper category of Kabbalah followers in a ceremony conducted by founder Kabbalah Centre founder Rabbi Berg.

'Her teachers think that she has reached the pinnacle of spiritual understanding.'

'To Madonna, this is the best achivement of her life,' a source said.

No, Madonna, I do not consider you a moral paragon worthy of worship.

Oh, hey, Madonna, do you keep a copy of your book SEX on the coffee table for Lourdes to read?

I guess I would tend to question the validity of any "religion" that Madonna could achieve this type of "seniority" in.

So that's what they are calling it now.

If this doesn't prove that "The Kabbalah Centre" is a whacked-out new-age cult then I don't know what does.

"pinnacle of understanding"? Please, probably more the pinnacle of money-giving.

Does anybody know the half-life of a Madonna belief? I'd reckon it to be about 5 years.

"Kabbalah" is a doctrine of esoteric knowledge concerning God and the universe, asserted to have come down as a revelation to elect saints from a remote past, and preserved only by a privileged few. Kabbalah is considered part of the Jewish Oral Law. It is the traditional mystical understanding of the Torah. Kabbalah stresses the reasons and understanding of the commandments, and the cause of events described in the Torah. Kabbalah includes the understanding of the spiritual spheres in creation, and the rules and ways by which God administers the existence of the universe.

Kaballah? Did the Church of Aphrodite reject her application for preistesshood for being too much of a skank?

I'll try to make this as simple as I can.

Kabbalah is a multi-volume ancient Rabbinic text, with unbelievable depth, extremely difficult to understand, recommended not to be studied until the age of 40, requires years of intense learning, and a background of many years of serious Torah study to even begin to understand it.

To assign ANY credibility to Madonna or her other Hollywood cohorts having the slightest idea of what Kabbalah is supposed to be is a complete travesty.

And BTW, who is Rabbi Berg?

From that quote alone, I can see that Kaballah is bunk --- knowledge to a "privilged few."

God does not hide His light under a bushel.

Who knows, maybe a strategic 'blend' of religions would help her cope with 21 century life!

A little Kaballah in the morning, a touch of Hindi (yoga) at night, sprinkled with a little LRon for fun (eMeter parties)... Presto! Instant Hollywood priestess!!

I did notice Demi Moore (former Mrs. Bruce Willis, now Ms. 70's show guy, no movies I recall except one where she plays a stripper) is also Kabballa nut.

She used to be a Scientologist nut, I believe.

So, to quote a poster above, "Kabballah is Hebrew for Scientology."

All kidding aside, a buddy of mine nailed her in a club about 5 minutes after meeting her. This was way back in the day (early 80's) when she was dating some club promoter/DJ named Jelly Bean or something like that.

He was proud of himself for all of 2 minutes before we jumped all over him for going with that skank (before she became famous for being a skank).

We used to howl with laughter when we were in a car and "Like a Virgin" would come on the radio.
