Madonna was one of the Hollywood stars who became interested in Kabbalah so much that she even opened up a center and devoted a lot to learn more about this old Jewish tradition.

It seems these celebrities opted for Kabbalah due to different personal reasons altogether. Sandra Bernhard stated that she was attracted to the ancient tradition due to its effectiveness of eliminating about 80% of all the chaos in her life.

Madonna stated that Kabbalah helped her realize that people on earth need to help each other and learn more about Kabbalah.
