Jerusalem - Pop music icon Madonna, who took Israel by storm earlier this week with two back-to-back concerts in Tel Aviv, wrapped up her tour with a visit Thursday night to the Safed tomb of a kabbalistic great.

Rabbi Isaac Luri - or the Ari - was one of the founders of kabbalism, a tradition Madonna has embraced over the last few years.

Pilgrims flock year round to his grave and the neighboring ritual bath at the foot of the ancient northern city.

Madonna was accompanied in her visit by Rabbi Michael Berg, her own rabbi’s brother, as well as her partner Jesus. At the site, she sang the Sabbath song “Lecha Dodi,” ringing in with a kabbalistic tune.

During her visit, the material girl has paid tribute to Jerusalem’s Old City, where she toured an ancient tunnel near the Western Wall - the holiest site where Jews can pray.

Madonna isn’t Jewish, but she’s a follower of Jewish mysticism and has even taken the Hebrew name Esther.

She arrived early Sunday for a pair of concerts in Tel Aviv this week. It was be her first performance in Israel since 1993, though she came on private pilgrimages in 2004 and 2007.

Madonna is also set to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday.

The 'frum person' is Michael Berg who might be worse off than Madonna. Mistame he wears the Yarmulka to cover the bald spot on his head - nothing more.

Oy Berel Berel, come I’ll show you Yiden who don’t want to touch her, Yiden who are holy and pure, Yiden who control their eyes wherever they go. Yiden who go through Yosef Hatzadiks Nisoiyoiness on a daily basis and come out unscratched. It’s Erev Rosh Hashonoh, the Shofar is sounding WAKE UP, you too can still become an active member of a Mamleches Kohanim Vegoi Kodosh. All it takes is a small effort but a pure one. I knoe people who succeeded last year, a year before, ten years ago. No matter how far someone has Farkruchen he can still become a five star general in the army of Hashem. All it takes is to signup. No background check is done.

Anyone who thinks that this is a kavod in any way and doesn't hurt from reading this story is far - very far. There is only one way to get close. Find someone who will learn Torah with you - anything. mussar, chumash, navi, mishna, gemara, aggada, halacha, etc. but it must be something that works with your particular learning strength. Do it. Stop Waiting. There are so many people who would learn with you if only you asked them.

That is "Rabbi" Berg. He is the perpetrator of the Kabala Center and one would be hard pressed to call him frum. You can not assume one is frum just because they wear a yarmulka. There are many so called reform and conservative that now wear yarmulkas.

Good. There is a sheilah of negiah al yedai davar achar. The sheila is based on how to learn up the Taz in hilchos niddah. The pashtus is that negiah al yidai davar achar is not assur. There is a similar sheilah about a husband pushing his wife in a wheel chair after she just gave birth. R' Nissin Karelitz is mattir, in part because he holds this is only negiah al yidai achar and therefore muttar. However, pshat in the Taz is not entirely clear.

For all the people who commented on how the Arizal feels, see the gemara in Brochos in the 2nd perek as to whether massim care about what happens in this world. Besides for that, how do you know how the Arizal feels? I find it regrettable that a shtick tuma goes around EY and peole think it is legitimate. However, why put words into other people's mouths?

"Madonna was accompanied in her visit by Rabbi Michael Berg, her own rabbi's brother, as well as her partner Jesus."

Michael, take a look at the rema in YD 246 and the Schach about learning kabbalah. Her partner has a great name. Nazareth is not that far.

Yes, what is the horror that someone has an interest in a saint's kever. I'm sure the Arizal can work this out without all of you chiming in. I wish her well. And no, I'm not a fan ... but this is so interesting.

A Yoshka-worshiping Pritza who goes around 3/4 undressed and who sings Shmutz in her recordings and at her concerts, singing in front of men, is not welcome in the Holy Land and is not welcome to pray at the grave of a Tzadik. What don't you understand?

Let me try to spell this out for you. The woman is a whore. She sells her body for money and it's mazal she couldn't take the cold water of the Ari's mikvah or she would be selling a video of herself toiveling while sing a "kabalistic" tune. True, No one sees her soul, but she tries to make sure everyone sees her body. Which part of that didn't you understand.

What difference does it makes, who is spreading the Pritzus, Jew or non-Jew? Pritzus is wrong, period, and especially in the Holy Land. It damages people's souls, and it's a smack at Hashem, in His "front yard."

Why is she “sprading sins all over the world”?

She is not Jewish she can dress and sing they she wants. You are not allowed to watch it. That’s it.

First fix yourself

Where did you get this idea from?

The non-Jews are bound by the 7 Noahide laws. I guarantee you that the way she dresses and sings is not according to those laws.

You frum ppl are so full of hate, its no wonder the frei hate the chareidim. I am frum but dont care if she or any other goy visits EY she is a goy she is allowed to sing whatever she wants. Plenty of jewish israeli singers are worse than her in the matter of pritzus.

It's not a matter of hate. How can you call yourself Frum, but you say you don't care what Madonna does? Pritzus (immodesty) is Pritzus, no matter whether it's a Jew or a non-Jew, and Hashem hates immodesty anywhere in the world, but especially in the Holy Land, Hashem's "front porch."

WHH
Accompanied by her partner "Yushkah" ??? She can go wherever she wants but if she is truly interested in the teachings of the Kabbalah, she would do well to stay away from the Holy Ari with "Yushkah" at the very least.

Not Yushka. LOL. Her "partner" is a very much alive Latino whose name is Jesus or "Hesus" in transliteration. Chill out. It's a common Latin American name.

I don't know how many people are aware of this but, a few years ago she made a music video wearing tefillin. Nuch a kiddush hashem!

And BTW she did perform once...with Kabalah lyrics and including an old Yemenite kabalistic tune composed by the famous Yemenite Kabbalist/comoser Rav Shalom Shabazi zt"l ...:" Im Ninalu" (I think it was sung by some Israeli Yemeni )

...Go figure that one!! Some strange things happening these days...The question what satisfaction does she get out of it?....Does this really make her a better person as she claims...?

What's really amazing.... is that EVERYONE HERE ACTUALLY KNOWS ALL ABOUT WHO SHE IS!!! Whether its a Kovod, a Shandeh, Acharis Hayomim, or Avi Avos - apparently everyone knows all about this shiktze all too well... maybe this is why Chazal say "Seyog Lachochmo Shesika", and "Mila Be'sela Shtikusa Bi'trei", or in plain English: "better to shut up and look like a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!"

It is a pleasure to hear how ehrliche yiden speak about someone they don't even know with such passion and love. I am curious, however, where a Ben (or Bas) Torah gets so much knowledge about who Madonna even is, let alone what she does and stands for? I couldn't find a reference to her or her actions in any mishnayis or parsha or anything?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on how you think other people should live, especially gentiles, since apparently you are such gedolim that you have knowledge of how tzaddikim who have passed from olam hazeh react to things here in this world. I especially appreciate your opinions on whether things are kiddush hashems or chillul hashems, because visits to anywhere in Israel that is open to the public by anyone but our own people is obviously a disgrace (I was unaware), and sinas chinom against people whom we don't know personally is a kiddush hashem, right? I was also unaware of this.

I can only imagine what a huge kiddush hashem it would probably be if the outside world were able to read what we have to say about them and about each other! and so eloquently, grammatically, and with such good spelling!

The only thing that still confuses me is where did all you Lamed Vovniks learn so much about Madonna? There must be some Tnach or Gemara I haven't learned yet, since I wouldn't believe that all the commenters here watch television or read People magazine! Please, tell me where you learned so much about madonna, and Berg and his "Kaballah Institute" as well? Please, I want to be a good Jew like you!
