Kabbalah, religion of Hollywood stars

Kabbalah is an ancient religion that was solely taught to men over 40 because Rabbis believed that the concepts were too complex to understand. They thought only these select men would not misunderstand its teachings, and so it was kept this way until recently. Interestingly enough Hollywood stars have taken a huge interest in ancient religion. What’s the attraction between Kabbalah and non-Jewish Hollywood stars?

Explore the Mysteries of Kabbalah

Kabbalah is an esoteric school of thought that originated in Judaism, having been interpreted by an elect group of “righteous” people, known as the Tzadikim and initially taught to only a privileged few. Kabbalah varies to an extent depending on the practitioner, though it always seeks to explain and connect people and the mortal world with God’s infinite universe. Kabbalah links traditional Jewish texts and teachings with esoteric teachings, with the goal of helping people better understand the purpose of their existence. Most practitioners believe that Kabbalah predates other world religions and inspired other religions, philosophies, and political systems. Kabbalah came about after earlier versions of Jewish mysticism, around the 12th or 13th century, in France and Spain; It was later reinterpreted during the Jewish renaissance during the 16th century. It became popular within Hasidic Judaism from the 18th century until the recent times where Kabbalah took on a more inclusive, contemporary form of spirituality .

The Kabbalah Center International is a non-profit organization in Los Angeles, California that seeks to spread the teachings of Kabbalah and offers courses on both the Zohar and Kabbalistic teachings. In addition to the main location in California, there are a number of other city based study centers and online learning is also available. Directors Michael (son of the late founder Philip Berg) and his mother, Karen Berg have worked to create an inclusive, multi ethnic international staff that are able to reach out to students seeking Kabbalistic study all over the world.

 

What makes the Kabbalah Center International so unique is that it seeks to spread Kabbalah to non-jewish people, both men and women (Kabbalah was initially only taught to males), regardless of whether or not they can read Hebrew. Kabbalistic teachings are presented as a supplement to a religion, rather than an alternative to it. Students are encouraged to volunteer and mentor others as it is a belief in Kabbalah that you will better understand the teachings if you are explaining and teaching others.
