The kabbala is taxable

According to Haaretz, "the estimated value of gifts and contributions to kabbalist rabbis ranges between NIS 1-4 billion."

Could this really be true? And is this a billion dollars annually, or over the past decade?

When are graduates of JTS and YU going to sue their alma maters for educational malpractice for failing to give them an adequate grounding in the important -- and lucrative -- field of Kabbalah?
