What is Kabbalah?

Kabbalah is the name given to the scope of Jewish mysticism. While the parts of the revealed Torah are focused on what Hashem wants from us; Kabbalah, which is the secret of the Torah, penetrates deeper intro the upper realms. It has an approach to every aspect of life such as health, relationships, careers and more; basically Kabbalah explains the mechanics of how the universe works.
