Kabbalah Center was established in 1922 by Rav Yehuda Ashlag in Israel. Rav started the organization with the aim of increasing religious knowledge based on Kabbalah wisdom and the Zohar. Most of his teachings gave reference to the Torah.
Since then Rav Yehuda has been succeeded by different students. Currently, Philip Berg and his family members serve as Kabbalah Center’s spiritual leaders. To date, Kabbalah Center has opened chapters in 50 locations among them being in America, Asia, Middle East, and Europe.
Originally, Kabbalah teachings were based on Judaism teachings. However, the current Kabbalistic lessons are centered on how a person can receive fulfillment, referred to as light in Kabbalistic teachings. Additionally, Kabbalah Centers counsel its followers on matters to do with relationships, health, and careers.
In recent days, the Kabbalah Center and its teachings have attracted student from all over the world. Some of Kabbalah Center’s students are celebrities like Madonna. From the time Madonna joined Kabbalah Center, she has been wearing the red ribbon that protects her against evil powers, and she does not perform on Friday night since it is an onset of the Shabbat.
In addition to her observance of the Shabbat, most of Madonna’s videos feature some of the Jewish ritual objects recommended in Kabbalistic teachings. Some other stars following Kabbalah teachings are Demi Moore, Britney Spears, Nicole Richie, Donner Karan, Elizabeth Taylor and many others.
Kabbalah Center is not a religious faith but a center that gives wisdom on different religions like Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The teachings are used to enhance divine wisdom thereby eliminating religious coercion.
The Kabbalah wisdom associates every aspect of life to be controlled by natural powers. Furthermore, a Kabbalist has to share generously to receive everlasting fulfillment. For this reason, most of Kabbalah Center’s students are generous individuals who support charity organizations that support various activities like relief, education, and health.
Kabbalah lessons are centered on five main themes that include kindness as a source of everlasting fulfillment, ego as the source of evil actions, cosmic powers as the main force controlling different aspects of life, and the spirit of oneness. The themes guide students to understand their purpose of life and how to receive the essence of God.
