For centuries, the study of Kabbalah was available only to scholarly, married religious men over the age of forty, and forbidden to all others. This tradition of hidden knowledge existed until 1969, when Rav Phillip Berg first became Director of the Kabbalah Centre. Together, Rav Berg and his wife Karen sought to make the wisdom of Kabbalah accessible and understandable to everyone, regardless of race, gender, or religious belief.
The Kabbalah Centre is a non-profit organization that serves students and our surrounding community with a place to study both online and in person, and a way to apply the tools of Kabbalah through connections, events and volunteering. We collect and translate the sacred texts of the ancient Kabbalists in hopes of exposing these secrets to students of every language, religion or spiritual practice. Our mission is to share Kabbalah’s life-changing wisdom and tools with as many people in the world as possible.
We teach spirituality for the modern world. We believe that at the core of the world’s great religions and spiritual traditions are truths founded in the wisdom of Kabbalah. As the wisdom of Kabbalah predates religion, this is a study that can enhance any individual’s spiritual life and bring a new depth of understanding to all religions.
