Kabbalah Centres are centers of learning the wisdom of Kaballah. Kaballah is not a religion; it was established before any religion existed, even before the Jewish nation came together to form Israel. The Jewish faith is the closest to Kabbalah, and they share certain Holy days such as Rosh Hanna. Kaballah Centres offer instruction on the principles of Kabalah, which unlock the secrets of the universe as well as those that need to be unlocked within ourselves.
Instructors use practical methods to teach the spirituality and wisdom of Kabbalah. The goal in studying this wisdom is to assist the student in living a fulfilled and satisfied life by making better decisions. Kabbalah helps the student to get through pain, suffering and confusion in their lives and to help them find the joy that is inside. Kabbalah believes that joy is at the center of everyone, it simply needs to be uncovered.
According to Wikipedia.com, Kabbalah Centres are found in over 40 locations around the world. The first Centre was established in 1922 in Israel. With the help of the Bergs and others, Centres were founded in the United States.
Rav and Karen Berg studied at the original Centre, and then they came back to the U.S. and founded a Kabbalah Centre in New York City. They began to translate the Kabbalah documents into every language that they could while teaching classes every day.
Kabbalah Centres allow students to study in one place, though now with the Internet, the Kabbalah University is broadcast around the world from the Los Angeles Centre. The Kabbalah Unversity sends courses to Europe via livestream as well.
The Centres bring students and instructors together to share in fellowship along with the classes. Once a month or more, the Centre has dinners for the students and instructors who want to join in.
Volunteering is another way the students join together. They have volunteer projects in the community and with other Centers to create unity. Karen Berg says that by sharing, individuals find fulfillment and satisfaction in their soul.
