A regular visitor to Jewhoo sent us a publicity release from an organization that specializes in a form of Jewish mysticism (kabbalah) that has gained widespread attention in recent years. Many celebrities are reported to be studying this form of mysticism --- or in the words of some rabbinical critics --- a severely modified form of this mystical tradition. We thought we’d modify this publicity release for a bit of comedic effect. Although we modified it a lot less than you might think. For example, we have not added a name of a single, well-known celebrity. We have changed the word "kabbalah" to "meshugass".It occurs to me that Rabbi Lamed ben Clifford is a true meshuganist.
(And the title is a gloss on "meshugass." Kabbalah is, of course, madness of a very serious kind.)
