Just like every other thing about Jews this problem has its roots in ancients.The Hebrew Bible Torah forbids any kind of idolatry .See First Commandment (Exodus 20:2-3, Deut 5:6-7)
Opposite to this we see Jewish historical enthusiasm and obsession with Idolatry ,Paganism and Kabbalah. One reason We can give may be psychological…..Under Pharoh rule in Egypt Israelites worshipped their masters as their Gods .They were in love with their slavery so even after they accompanied Moses to Sinai They still managed to revive Paganism in some form or other despite warnings and curses coming their way.One famous example is Israelite making calf from Egyptian gold and worshipping it Exodus 32:4.
The major theme of the Hebrew Bible’s narrative is the loyalty of Judah, and especially its kings, to Yahweh, which it states is the God of Israel.
Accordingly, all the kings of Israel and almost all the kings of Judah were “bad”, which in terms of Biblical narrative means that they failed to enforce worship of Yahweh alone. Of the “good” kings, Hezekiah (727–698 BCE) is noted for his efforts at stamping out idolatry (in this case, the worship of Baal and Asherah, among other traditional Near Eastern divinities),but his successors, Manasseh of Judah (698–642 BCE) and Amon (642–640 BCE), revived idolatry, drawing down on the kingdom the anger of Yahweh. King Josiah (640–609 BCE) returned to the worship of Yahweh alone, but his efforts were too late and Israel’s unfaithfulness caused God to permit the kingdom’s destruction by the Babylonians in c.587/586 BCE.
Gradually The teachings of Torah were forgotten and already scant criticism died The the cults Judaic Paganism and Hellenistic Judaism emerged.The pagan practices came to be regarded and practiced as Judistic.
This was done easily by the Oral Law Yes,The Talmud.The very first rabbi to interpret idolatry in a favorable light.Today We can find origins of one of most Kaballistic ,brutal and racist teachings in Maimonides.He was a medieval Sephardic Jewish philosopher and astronomer.
In his The Guide to the Perplexed, I:36, Maimonides holds that in the original form of idolatry, no one actually believed that their idols were gods; he states that idol-worshippers understood that their idols were only representations of a god, or God. Idols are “worshipped in respect of its being an image of a thing that is an intermediary between ourselves and God.”
Maimonides spends the first one-third of the Guide attempting to show that a literalist understanding of the metaphores, idoms, and homonyms in the Hebrew Bible are idolatrous in this regard. For Maimonides, and other philosophers in the neo-Aristotelian mold, it is idolatry to believe that God has positive attributes.
Within two centuries the confused Jews who already did worship idols in some form or other accepted Mainomide’s interpretation put Torah aside .With incoming centuries rabbis discussed more and more the practices of Idolatry among Judean Kings rather than the teaching of the prophets hence alienation of common Jews from Torah.
Illuminati is just another manifestation of Idolatory.Judeo-Paganism, which is a mixture of Jewish and polytheistic practices. Some of those practices involve honoring (or remembering) divinities that were among those rejected by the prophets of the Tanakh (for example, Ba’al and Asherah).
