The Kabbalah Centre has made headlines since it’s first location opened in 1984 because of the hidden form of the teachings being revealed by its teachers and its long list of celebrity students. The history of Kabbalah dates back to ancient times and was said to be first discovered by Adam before being handed on to Abraham and later to Moses; the scriptures detailing Kabbalah have remained largely hidden because of their complex and difficult nature. The Kabbalah Centre has found success through the work of three main Rabbi who set out to make this teaching as accessible as possible.
Rav Philip Berg is the head of the non-profit organization behind the Kabbalah Centre and works with his wife, Karen to continue to publish books and develop programs that make this ancient form of study as easy to interpret as possible. The work of Rav Berg began when he studied with Rav Yehuda Ashlag and his fellow student Rav Brandwein in the mid 20th cetnury and began to develop the work begun by Rav Ashlag in the 1920s. The global recognition the Kabbalah Centre now enjoys comes from the work of a group of international teachers who have brought the adaptation of Kabbalah’s teachings into the mainstream.
Kabbalah has always been seen as a complex and hidden area of the Jewish religion that only the most spiritual could explore with the aid of dedicated teachers; as this form of scripture was discovered across Europe and the Middle East between the 15th and 18th centuries Jewish elders discouraged its learning apart from for males aged over 40. The Kabbalah Centre has worked hard to break down the barriers that were built up around this religious teaching and allow all genders and age groups to explore its religious direction. Opening the doors of the Kabbalah Centre to all people and producing different books on the teachings has allowed the organization to bring this spiritual form of living to more people than ever before.
