Madonna is ringing in the Jewish New Year at a Kabbalah conference in Israel. Kabbalah which is part of the Jewish religious tradition is believed to have come down from a revelation by a select group. At the conference, Madonna was singing Jewish songs, apparently even leading a friend of hers up to the front of the room to part-take in a dance. Although raised a Roman Catholic, Madonna has been a follower of Jewish mysticism for the last few years, wearing a red string around her wrist to ward off the eveil eye.
Madonna made her first trip to Israel in 2004.
