    See my answer at the other version of this question.

    Madonna follows "the Kabbalah Institute" (aka "Kabbalah Center") - This is not Kabbalah. It is a money making scam loosely based on some books of Kabbalah. They sell magic water and red strings and trick cancer patients into giving up their savings.

    Kabbalah is Jewish religious mysticism -- it involves attaining a deep understanding of fullness of every Jewish ritual act and seaking the deeper meaning behind every Biblical story.

    No, she never converted to Judaism, so she is not Jewish.

    She practices Kabbalah, which I suppose anyone can do. You don't have to be Jewish.

    esoteric = unusual or strange for most people, since they don't understand it

    Madonna Ciccone is Catholic (jeez, she's Italian in heritage!) She "practices" Kaballah or Jewish mysticism.
