New York -- Orthodox Jewish leaders have reportedly raised a hue and cry over Kaballah, the religion currently being espoused by stars like Madonna, Demi Moore and Britney Spears.
They claim that the religion has become more of a marketable venture rather than a spiritual cult.
According to The New York Post, the fashion accessories store Target in NY is making money by selling red Kabbalah strings, which are imitations of the ones Madonna, Demi Moore and Britney Spears wear.
Many orthodox Jewish leaders say that the Kabbalah Center's money minting ventures are like selling the strings and "Kabbalah water."
Listed as a "hot buy" on Target's Web site, the string is "believed to protect against the evil eye." Each is said to have "traveled to Israel, to the ancient tomb of Rachel the Matriarch, and returned imbued with the essence of protection."
