Message:  A while back you said to Gershon, with regard to Kabbalah:

"You are mistaken. Reading the Seforim of the Ariza"l and others is "Mesorah Ish Mepi Ish." (transfered from person to person)"

Although I do not claim to be an expert on Kabbalah, I would kindly ask your opinion on the Sefer HaIkarim in Ma'amar Sheni, Perek 28, where he says, referring to kabbalah, "v'Ei efshar la'amod al ha'emes bah mitoch ha'ksav klal (...and it is impossible to stand upon the truth of it from within writings at all)?

I eagerly await your reply.

Reply:  I Don't understand your question.
