Studying online is possible if you want to learn about the Kabbalah. We live in the modern world and therefore you do not have to go into a spiritual retreat in the mountains to study the practice. In fact, the specialists from the official Laitman site make it very clear that studying the Kabbalah is only a computer click away. You do need to make sure that you are studying with verified, accredited rabbis, however. Studying with anyone who’s not formally trained in Jewish mysticism is a very bad idea. A good way to see if a rabbi is worth studying with is to ask your local community about them or read their reviews if they are offering an online service. Go to your normal rabbi if possible too and ask for their guidance, as they should be able to help you find a practitioner who is ideal for you.
If you want to study the Kabbalah, then you need to make sure that you are dedicated to it. The study of Jewish mysticism can take an entire lifetime, as noted in the previous section. If you do not make sure that you are dedicated to the Kabbalah and to studying your faith, there is no way that you are going to prosper in it. Make sure that when you are studying the Kabbalah you listen to the person that is instructing you and follow their advice and guidance.
