Kabbalah Centres are non-profit organizations centered around the ancient wisdom of Kabbalah. Kabbalah is not a religion, but a form of spirituality that originated thousands of years ago with the beginning of Judaism. Today, there are Kabbalah Centres in over 40 cities around the world, so anyone who is interested can learn about Kabbalah.
Kabbalah Centres provide courses of study about Kabbalah, which is based on the principles of Creation and the physical and spiritual laws of the universe. The instructors are elder Kabbalahists who pass down the practice of the principles. They believe that the human existence can be benefited by applying the universal laws.
Kabbalah also believes that there is joy in all peoples, so part of the journey is uncovering that joy. The Los Angeles Centre is the largest kabbalah Centre, and it was founded in the 1980s by the Rav and Karen Berg who had studied under Rav Ashtag. The first Kabbalah Centre was founded in 1922 in Israel by Rav Ashtag.
The study of the universal wisdom of Kabbalah is the main focus in the Centres and dinners are held so members can fellowship, along with meditation classes and videos.
Giving is one of the major principles, and to instil that in the members, they volunteer in the community that surrounds their Centre. These are all ways that Kabbalah is taught in the Kabbalah Centres.
