Madonna's dedication to the Kabbalah religion has been well-documented, but a new song on her latest album has gotten her in hot water with Jewish scholars. The tune, "Isaac," is about 16th century Jewish mystic and Kabbalah scholar Yitzhak Luria. However, Rabbi Rafael Cohen has said that the Material Girl is breaking Jewish law by releasing a song about Luria. Cohen, who runs a seminary named after Luria in Jerusalem, told the Israeli Maariv newspaper, ''Jewish law forbids the use of the name of the holy rabbi for profit. Her act is just simply unacceptable and I can only sympathize for her because of the punishment that she is going to receive from the heavens." Added Rabbi Israel Deri, "Such a woman brings great sin on Kabbalah."
Madonna's new album, Confessions On A Dance Floor, hits stores on November 15. Lead single "Hung Up" goes for adds at radio next week.
