What do you think about me going to a class to learn Kabbalah?
You have to know that today there are many fakers who are teaching Kabbalah. They’re not mekubalim, they’re mekablim (takers). They want your money, that’s all.
If men give classes to which women come, and sometimes a couple of gentiles as well, then you know it’s a big fake. If anybody teaches Kabbalah, it has to be in a very narrow circle of talmidei chachomim. When a person advertises to the general public, “Come one, come all. Men and women. Anybody is welcome,” without asking for any qualifications to learn Kabbalah, then you know that he is a faker and you should stay away from him.
