The Kabbalah Centre’s Universal Appeal Explained

While the Kabbalah Centre headquarters in Los Angeles, California was established in 1984, the Centre’s history in the United States began back in 1965, when founder Philip Berg established The National Research Institute of Kabbalah in New York City. Primarily, the Kabbalah Centre focuses on the Zohar, a collection of books that discuss the mystical aspects of passages found in the Torah. While written in Aramaic, students at the Kabbalah Centre do not need to understand Aramaic, or even Hebrew, to grasp the meaning of the passages, which allows a universal audience to study Kabbalah.

Kabbalah appeals to people searching for spirituality unconnected to traditional organized religion. Although Kabbalah was originally taught to male Orthodox Jews typically over age 40, Berg’s teacher was Rabbi Yehuda Brandwein, who was a disciple of Rav Yehuda Ashlag, the man credited with opening the study Kabbalah to more individuals, and laying the foundation of the current Kabbalah Centre.

According to the Kabbalah teachings, everyone has greatness in them; Kabbalah shows individuals how to activate the greatness. Kabbalistic wisdom explains how the universe works and it offers fulfillment as well, which explains both its draw and why Berg was insistent that the Centre admit anyone who was considering taking classes in Kabbalah. Deep down, people are curious about the purpose of life, therefore, studying ancient spiritual principles and understanding the revelations contained within them, is why there are so many people are currently taking classes at one of the forty the Kabbalah Centres worldwide or studying online.

When Berg died in 2013, his wife and sons, Yehuda and Michael, kept the Kabbalah Centre, and its numerous branches operating as Berg wished, making Kabbalah widely accessible. Men and women, irregardless of their religion, may study Kabbalah at the Kabbalah Centre to gain practical tools for a better life.
