When Rav Philip Berg and his wife Karen started The Kabbalah Centre, they decided to make the spiritual wisdom of Kabbalah accessible to all people, without exclusion, whereas before, only male academic scholars typically studied it. In videos, Karen recounts how she prompted her Orthodox rabbi husband to teach her Kabbalah, which he did, therefore, they decided that there was no reason to keep Kabbalah a secret from anyone. While the Zohar, the canonical text of Kaballah, is inescapably a Jewish text, the message of Kabbalah transcends diverse beliefs. To universalize Kabbalah, and encourage non-Jews to utilize the tools it provided, the Bergs made it relevant to all modern spiritual seekers.Kabbalah Cebtre Facebook .
While Rav Berg’s passed away in 2013, Karen Berg remains, as the spiritual director of The Kabbalah Centre, while Philip Berg’s son Michael serves as co-director of the centre. The worldwide headquarters are in Los Angeles, in the heart of the city’s orthodox Jewish community.
While Philip and Karen Berg once studied Kabbalah on a ping-pong table with friends and turned their apartment into National Institute for Research in Kabbalah Centre, their vision grew into the largest worldwide organization devoted to teaching Kabbalah. After changing the name and moving to Los Angeles, The Kabbalah Centre opened additional branches in North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Asia. People who do not live near a branch can take Kabbalah University’s video lessons or download one of the Kabbalah Centre’s apps from the iTunes store. Scholarships are available to individuals who wish to study Kabbalah, but cannot afford to do so. Read New York times news for Kabbalah.
