Jewish Mysticism

Jewish Mysticism is concerned with the infinity of meaning embedded in the sacred text and with grasping the divine being which transcends the boundaries of time and space. The Jewish mystical tradition is expressed in a huge diverse library written in the course of the last three millennia. Its content could be divided into two major focuses: one is known as Chariot and Temple Mysticism, and one is known as Kabbalah and Messianism.
