|Wikimedia Commons has media related to Jewish mysticism.|
The Jewish mysticism category contains articles concerning doctrines of esoteric knowledge and interpretation (exegesis, hermeneutic) "soul" of the Torah (Hebrew Bible), and the various religious mystical systems in the history of Judaism.
Contents of this category should be reassigned to sub-categories: Category:Kabbalah, Category:Hasidic Judaism etc. as much as possible. Sometimes, however, one topic develops through the different eras of Jewish mysticism history. In academia, Kabbalah refers restrictively to the new mystical doctrines that emerged in 12th century France, developed in 13th century Spain, and were reformulated in 16th century Safed. Previous forms of Jewish mysticism in extant manuscript/literary record are designated by different titles: Merkabah mysticism, Chassidei Ashkenaz etc.
