Hi, Sweetie, 

Thanks for the cool site. I have explored it and also found it very
readable and highly educational. I believe it will prove particularly
useful to people whose interest in the mystical Kabbalah springs from
19th century Hermetic sources and not from their own ethnic Jewishness.
I have constructed and am passing along the entire list of URLs to siva,
with cross-posts to the Sacred Landscrape e-list, alt.magick.tyagi, and
alt.magick as well.

This URL list will be archived in the Lucky Mojo Esoteric Archive, under
the heading "esoteric/religion/judaism" -- however, the texts themselves
are copyright protected and will not be mirrored.
