Kabbala is an intellectual discipline so demanding that the prof never came close to qualifying to learn the real thing. to Study authentic Kabbalah the student needs to be familiar with the entire Talmud in depth and the totality of Jewish legal topics,and apply these in his own life. Then he needs to find a teacher who himself is part of an unbroken chain of transmitting this wisdom. Kabbala is an intellectually demanding and clearly defined topic of study that resembles nuclear physics more than mysticism.That is why there are so many preconditions.
