Movie Info

Kabbalah Me is a personal journey into the esoteric spiritual phenomenon known as Kabbalah. Throughout history, Kabbalah was studied by only the most holy Talmud scholars. The misinformation, innuendo and prohibition surrounding Kabbalah kept its wisdom from most Jews; many were even unaware of its existence. In Kabbalah Me, director Steven Bram embarks on a spiritual investigation that leads him to reunite with the Hasidic branch of his family and connect to the community of Judaic scholarship. Eventually his curiosity takes him on a pilgrimage to Israel, where he immerses himself in history and traditions of the Holy Land. Along the way, leading authorities discuss the complex, mystical world of Kabbalah - its varying interpretations and the myriad paths of its rituals and lessons. Bram's new commitment to spirituality and religious observance draws skepticism from family and friends but ultimately leads to profound changes across all aspects of his life.(c) First Run Features

Perhaps the filmmaker should have spent more time behind the camera instead of front and center, as he observes a host of Jewish rituals and traditions and chats with rabbis, congregants, scholars and devout members of his extended family.

"Kabbalah Me," which distinguishes between "narrow consciousness" and "expanded consciousness," merely walks the middle ground.

Sweetly odd ...

Amusing, much like its title, but often shallow and incomplete.

September 1, 2014 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

Kabbalah Me is most satisfying as a personal artifact that traces Bram's quest, bumps and all, and it stumbles when it attempts to lay on educational aspects.
