The Kabbalah Centre, a not for profit organization based in Los Angeles, California, was founded in 1965 by Rav Phillip Berg. They’re primary mission is to make the study of Kabbalah accessible to all individuals who wish to become spiritually enlightened. In 1922 Rav Yehuda Ashlag set out to bring Kabbalah to all persons and not keep its teachings contained to a narrow population. His beginnings were what led to Rav Berg to create the Kabbalah Centre, and his dream boldly lives on today.
Rav Yehuda Ashlag was a master kabbalist who wanted to take the guarded secrets of kabbalah and bring them to all people who were searching for more meaning and enlightenment. He began providing the knowledge he had mastered and passing down the information to students that would carry it on and expand its accessibility. The Kabbalah Centre became the modern vessel for people to seek out and gain information about the ancient wisdom and quickly became a community that shared in the spiritual insight that kabbalah provides.
Kabbalah has been passed down through generations for thousands of years. Its main focus is acquiring God’s designs for the universe. In ancient civilizations, this information had to be sought out by individuals and was taught and practiced in a secretive and obscure manner in oral teachings. Modern day kabbalah works at inspiring everyone to gain knowledge and perspective of God’s composition by providing classes and texts. The Kabbalah Centre has traditional brick-and-mortar establishments in more than 40 cities world wide. They also host instructional videos and online classes to help more people become active students of kabbalah.
The Kabbalah Centre has helped to engage thousands of people in the ancient studies of spiritual joy and fullfillment. They have created an open forum for people from all walks of life to learn the mysteries of the universe in which they live in, and feel a stronger connection to it, both inside and out. As time moves forward, the Kabbalah Centre will continue to contribute the knowledge of the spiritual ancestors to all people looking to live a more peaceful life.
