You may have heard of celebrities who follow the ancient teachings of Kabbalah such as: Madonna, Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, Demi Moore, Alex Rodriguez, Ariana Grande, and more. Although the growing list of celebrities who are students of Kabbalah is lengthy, you should know that practicing the teachings of Kabbalah doesn’t require you to be rich and famous. The Kabbalah Centre is a non-religious, spiritual organization that spans across nationalities, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
Rav Philip Berg and his wife Karen Berg brought Kabbalah teachings to the masses. Rav Philip Berg expanded upon the methods used by Rav Yehuda Ashlag. Rav Ashlag was the founder of the Kabbalah Centre, and he structured the teachings as we now know it. He founded the Kabbalah Centre in 1922. Kabbalah is not a hierarchal method of study that pushes students and followers to attain levels of knowledge and understanding. It is simply practical enlightenment that you can use in many areas of life in order to experience greater joy, love, and a sense of purpose. What we know of as today as the Kabbalah Centre started out as the National Research Institute of Kabbalah in 1965 in New York.
The primary headquarters for the Kabbalah Centre is located in Los Angeles, which was opened in 1984. There are Kabbalah Centres all across the world which includes centres in Rio de Janeiro, Milan, Miami, Toronto, and other areas in the US, Asia and Middle East, the Americas, and Europe. If you can’t find a Kabbalah Centre near you, then you can go online and watch online Kabbalah classes or read resources about the principles, history, and core teachings of Kabbalah. Through the Kabbalah Center Charitable Causes (KCCC), the Kabbalah Centre continuously gives back on a global scale to those in need. Spiritual, physical, and financial support has been provided to individuals, groups, and nations to bring relief and support in the wake of natural disasters, poverty and hunger, and gender inequality.
In much of their charitable work, the Kabbalah Centre has partnered with other charitable organizations such as the American Red Cross, Partners in Health and Habitat for Humanity, and other groups.
