The Veiled Wisdom of Kabbalah is Now Available Worldwide
Today, there are Kabbalah Centres in over 40 cities worldwide, but they have only existed since 1922 when RavYoshlag started the first. They provide instruction on the principles of this ancient wisdom called Kabbalah, which is spiritual wisdom that originated with Moses at the beginning of Judaism. The Kabbalists are interested in becoming closer to the revealed Light and its properties, and the core document for all Kabbalah is the book called Zohar.
Zohar is an ancient commentary on the Bible written by RavYochai in the second century. The actual writings present a mystery, including reincarnation and the path of redemption. The sole purpose of Kabbalah is to get closer to the Divine Light, and Kabbalah Centres are centered around that goal.
Kabbalah Centres were not formed earlier in their history because, in ancient days, it was passed down by word of mouth from specific rabbis and other religious people. During the days of early Israel, the study of Kabbalah was veiled and secretive. The phenomenon was associated with Jewish traditions that originated in the study of the Torah and the Jewish feast days and what Kabbalah knows.
Many of the ancient documents refer to this time when the Jewish nation of Israel was being formed with Moses and the prophets. As it progressed through the ages, it never grew or was recognized by the public because it was kept in the elite groups and .
Kabbalah is not a religion, so before the Kabbalah Centre, this form of spirituality remained a secret belief, not available for the public. RavAshlag completely changed that perspective when he established the first Kabbalah Centre. Now anyone who was close to a Centre was invited to study the ancient documents and other literature that are taught.
Rav and Karen Berg studied in Israel for over 10 years, and in 2008 they established the first Kabbalah Centre in America in NYC. In the lineage of Kabbalists, they translated many ancient documents other languages. Four years later, they started a Centre in San Francisco and, shortly after, one in LA. It was in LA that Kabbalah University is online daily, and now it is the largest Kabbalah Centre and more information click here.
