In 2016, over 40 cities around the globe have one or more Kabbalah Centres open, but the first was started in 1922 when RavAshtag founded the first Kabbalah Centre in Israel. Up until that time, Kabbalah has been a spiritual wisdom that was only passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth.
The name Kabbalah means received teachings or traditions, and though it is not a religion, Kabbalah has its roots in Judaism, This spiritual wisdom dates back to the foundation of the Jewish culture with Moses, and the study of Kabbalah was traditionally only available to the upper segment of priests and prophets.
When the first Kabbalah Centre was formed, it broke all the traditions of this belief because now anyone who was interested in learning about Kabbalism could come to the Centre.
Rav and Karen Berg came to the Kabbalah Centre in Israel and studied under Rav Ashtag for almost a decade. Then, they returned to America and started a Kabbalah Centre in NYC in 1985. This was the first Kabbalah Centre in the U.S. and the Bergs taught classes on the principles of Kabbalah and translated ancient Kabbalah documents into English.
By the year 2016, Kabbalah Centre offer much more than instruction. They have developed and become central meeting places. Besides instruction in the principles of this ancient wisdom from the elder Kabbalists, the members hold dinners monthly to share their ideas and the Centre has volunteering events so the members can reach out into the community to help those in need. Anyone who is interested is welcome to the classes and more information click here.
Today, there are five Kabbalah Centres in the U.S.: NYC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Arizona and Utah, but the Internet has also opened up the world to Kabbalah. Streaming out of the LA Centre, the Kabbalah University is available 24 hours a day, In the past century, Kabbalism has grown from only being studied by a small group of people to letting the entire world learn about this ancient wisdom and its teachings. If there is no Centre in your city, go to Kabbalah.com for more information.
