Judaism is a religion that began thousands of years before Jesus lived, which was during the first century AD when Chritaiisnity was born. Kabbalah is the study of the ancient wisdom that began with the Jewish culture during the days of Moses. and it is not a religion. Kabbalah means “received teaching,” and it is a study of the esoterical principles of this wisdom. Kabbalah was very strong during the Middle Ages, and its spirituality was practiced by many.
Today, Kabbalah is available around the world due to the Internet. The study of Kabbalah was traditionally passed down from generation to generation among the priests and the spiritual community, and it wasn’t for the average person to learn.
In 1922, Rav Ashtag began the first Kabbalah Centre in Israel. Ancient documents in Arabic and Hebrew were studied, and in the 70’s Rav and Karen Berg went to study at the Kabbalah Centre.
They founded the first Kabbalah Centre in NYC and began to hold classes as they translated ancient documents into English and other languages. Interest began to grow and several years later, they opened a Centre in San Francisco and then one in Utah, Arizona, and Los Angeles. There are now Kabbalah Centres in over 40 cities around the world that act as a meeting place for those interested in learning more.
Kabbalah Centres make this traditional and very practical wisdom available for anyone who would like to enhance their lifestyle. The Centres allow people who live in the area to come into the Centre and learn the wisdom to solve problems in their lives.
The Centres encourage fellowship with dinners every month and volunteering events in the neighborhood to help others. Kabbalah Centres and the Kabbalah University online are the doe every one interested in more information on Kabbalah or go to Kabbalah.com.
