From the middle ages there was also a Christian kabbalah.
Many renaissance philosophers, mystics and religious leaders found hidden meanings in ancient Greek and Egyptian mathematics.
I have to agree that the modern kabbalah followed by Madonna, Britney, David Beckham et al has very little to do with either of the historical strands of the kabbalah.
The Sefiroth is not a tree in itself, but is a collective name for the first ten of the 32 paths between the number groups that make up the Tree of Life.
Have a look at http://www.sinfin.net/kabbalah/treeoflife.html for a bit more.
