Naomi Campbell embraces Kabbalah


(JTA) — Supermodel Naomi Campbell has embraced Kabbalah.

Campbell told Interview magazine in its October cover story that she is practicing the teachings of Jewish mysticism in response to recent difficulties in her life.

"I study Kabbalah because it takes me to a positive, calm place," she said. "That’s what I use it for, and it helps me a lot. I’ve been in and out of Kabbalah since around 2000. It’s just something I have taken more seriously [recently]."

Campbell said Kabbalah has helped turn her life around and calm her notorious temper.

"I’ve been practicing. I don’t know if I’ve been pronouncing everything right," she said, "but I’ve been practicing."
