This chapter attempts to map out the spread of Kabbalah in the twentieth century. It first focuses on the qualitative aspects of Kabbalah's proliferation in terms of innovative, creative, and radical doctrines. It also briefly discusses quantitative issues such as the mass dissemination, influence, and institutionalization of Kabbalah, which are important from an external sociological perspective. Additionally, this mapping also focuses on four trends: the Hasidic world, the Lithuanian world, the Oriental-Sephardic world, and the Religious-Zionist world.

Keywords:   twentieth century, Kabbalah, Hasidic world, Lithuanian world, Oriental-Sephardic world, Religious-Zionist world
