To study Kabbalah, a wisdom of the soul in the Jewish tradition, is to seek answers to many of the questions we all have about human existence. Why are we here? Who are we? How can we live a fulfilled life? These are but a few. Kabbalah, literally translated as the ‘received wisdom’, is based on ancient teachings communicated to Kabbalists by divine revelation over five thousand years ago and eventually published in the Zohar, the sacred book of these teachings. Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, a Talmudic mystic of the second century is known to be responsible for this remarkable text which has been passed from one generation to another. It was in the late 13th century that Kabbalist R.Moshe De Leon brought it all together in the Zohar and this divine knowledge became the core of Kabbalah studied all over the world today.
Because Kabbalah has many different meanings and has gone through many transformations, the Kabbalah Centre presents this coded wisdom in all its varieties of interpretation, not just to study but as a way of life. A non-profit organization founded in 1922 by Rav Yehuda Ashlag, who wanted to make this mysterious source of enlightenment available to all, the Kabbalah Centre offers a series of courses to reveal the teachings of the great Kabbalists, guiding each student to the path of higher consciousness through understanding the spiritual laws of the universe and the essence of being human.
Including online study for those unable to attend in person, daily and monthly events, and mentorship one-on-one available to anyone, regardless of race, creed, religion, sex or social status,the Centre embraces today’s modern teaching of the Kabbalah. By using five core principles: Sharing, Awareness and Balance of Ego, Existence of Spiritual Laws, We Are All One, Creating Miracles, the Centre, now in the capable hands of Rav Berg and staff from all over the world, helps to activate the highest potential in each individual with these oldest principles of spiritual wisdom.
In a world of up and down emotions and worries, the Kabbalah reveals a way of living that transcends self, allowing us to see that all that exists is the Infinite Light. Becoming aware that everything has meaning and purpose, we can all access the secrets of the universe and rejoice in living as the beings of light we are meant to be.
