Red String Gives You Wings

Chava Weissler, professor of religion studies at Lehigh, was quoted in an article about Kabbalah Energy Drink. The makers say the drink is infused with water blessed by a rabbi and contains amino acids and vitamins. But aside from the name and the rabbi-blessed water, it’s unclear what this beverage has to do with Kabbalah or beliefs dating back to the origin of the Torah. Weissler doesn’t attribute any of the drink’s energy boost to Kabbalah. "I would not think there would be any actual spiritual benefit to drinking this," Weissler said. "The true teachings of Kabbalah have nothing to do with energy drinks."
