The Kabbalah Centre located in Los Angeles, California is a non-profit organization that was opened by Rabbi Phillip Berg in 1984. The Kabbalah Centre offers Zohar and Kabbalistic teachings both online and through onsite study groups. It’s multi-ethnic, international staff provides guidance to a worldwide student community. The courses were developed by Rabbi Berg, the center’s director, and Karen Berg, his wife.
At the Kabbalah Centre, their approach is students don’t need to understand Hebrew and Jewish texts to begin learning the teachings of Kabbalah. They see other religious and spiritual belief systems as branches of one universal wisdom. The Kabbalah Centre isn’t an alternative to the world’s religions, but is a supplement that can add to them.
