Madonna arrives in Israel for Kabbalah conference
By Saguy Ben Nun, Haaretz Correspondent 9/16/2004
superstar Madonna and her husband, filmmaker Guy Richie attended Thursday a
lecture given by her Los Angeles Kabbalah teacher, Eitan Yardeni, at the David
Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv.
Madonna landed in Israel Wednesday evening to take part in a Kabbalah conference
with some 2,000 participants from 22 countries. Madonna, who performed in Israel
in 1993, arrived here from Lisbon, the last leg of her "Reinvention" world tour
which began in May.
Madonna's husband, Guy Ritchie, arrived in Israel together with her but her two
children were not accompanying them.
The Kabbalah Center sponsoring the event confirmed that fashion designer Donna
Karan will also be participating in the conference, along with Marla Maples,
Donald Trump's ex-wife. Actress Demi Moore is also reportedly joining the group.
The Kabbalah Center has extensively publicized the participation of Rabbi Philip
Berg, head of the world Kabbalah Center, as conference head, but Haaretz has
learned that Berg will not be attending the conference. "The rabbi is ill, and
he is now feeling better. He has to get permission from his doctors to fly to
Israel," Tali Rosen, Kabbalah Center spokesperson said.
The conference will begin Wednesday night and continue until Sunday. The main
event is a gala benefit for a "spiritual fund for children," to be held at the
David Intercontinental Hotel. Ahinoam Nini will sing three numbers, including
John Lennon's "Imagine," along with Palestinian songstress Amal Murkus. Madonna
is scheduled to speak at the event.
Conference participants will spend 12 days in Israel. Their itinerary includes
the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai in Meron, the tomb of Kabbalah luminary Rabbi
Isaac Lurie in Safed, and the Tomb of Rachel near Bethlehem. The center has
reserved 1,200 rooms in hotels in Tel Aviv and Tiberias.
Madonna's fans are coming out in full force at the hotel for their idol. One
fan, Liron Shahar, 24, from Petah Tikva, had a special shirt Tuesday to wear in
hopes of attracting the star's attention, emblazoned with the Kabbalistic name
Madonna chose for herself, Esther.
On the invitation to journalists extended by Arad Communication representing the
Kabbalah Center, news organizations were asked to send non-Jewish camera crews
to cover conference events taking place on Rosh Hashanah and Saturday. The
invitation also notes that Jewish journalists may not write.
"We are not
interested in desecrating the holiday," explained Rosen, who also said they did
not want "to hurt the feelings of those for whom the holiday and the Sabbath are
A public address system will be in operation over the holiday, which, according
to Rosen "is permitted according to halakha [Jewish law]."
