I think 60 Minutes, or other tv shows like this, should do an Expose' on Madonna and this childrens book, and its affiliation with that phony new-age Kabbalah cult.
If you want to, you can contact 60 Minutes by mail, phone, or email at the bottom of the page, and suggest they investigate this matter.

Quite the contrary, Kabbalah has been around for thousands of years - a section of Judaism. Judaism is the oldest religion of the western world. Hardly "New-age"..And phony? I personally dont see how you can comment.Quote

"I find it interesting that a celebrity who engages in a lesbian act (kissing Britney Spears) is so deeply involved with a part of the Jewish tradition - a tradition that in the past has rejected homosexuality. I also find it strange that the Kabbalah is divorced from orthodox ritual and lifestyle."
Madonna's involvment in Kabbalah is of a very basic level. By no means does Madonna represent the religion, and by no means do her actions represent the religion either.
I think many of you are being highly critical of some decent down to earth work on Madonna's part. If she has stated that the money will goto childrens charitys then - it will. I cannot and don't want to defend Madonna and I dont believe she is a representative of the spiritual belief, but helping kids in need is an extreamly important task.
So why dont you all get off your computer, stop all these accusations and help some children.
