Having grown up studying the wisdom of Kabbalah, Rachel felt empowered by the understanding that she was responsible for the things that happen in her life. While studying History and Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University, she also volunteered and taught teen courses at the New York Kabbalah Centre, followed by several years of teaching and meeting students one-on-one in London.

Before she began teaching Kabbalah, Rachel was drawn to acting and the transformative experience of taking on different roles. She soon realized that the same rush of transformation she felt on stage could be felt every day by committing to living outside of her comfort zone. In the classroom, Rachel makes the wisdom of Kabbalah not just applicable, but also accessible, breaking down complex ideas into digestible and relatable concepts while preserving the deep spirituality of Kabbalah. Rachel’s lively and lived spirituality, combined with her love for many expressions of creativity, have made her a fresh and contemporary voice in creative fulfillment. 

Rachel currently teaches and resides in Berlin with her husband and Kabbalah Centre teacher, David Wende.

Lag b'Omer: The Night of the Zohar
May 22
Michael Berg

On the 33rd day of the Omer, a positive, intelligent energy is transmitted throughout the universe. Rav Shimon bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, chose to leave this world on this day. He did so because it is a day on which, every year, a massive amount of Light is revealed throughout the cosmos that removes all darkness. By leaving the world on this day, Rav Shimon formed a bridge into the spiritual realm, fusing with and giving us access to that powerful Light. In the twelve years that Rav Shimon spent studying the Torah and revealing the Zohar in a cave, he completely transformed himself. He went through a spiritual process to remove all traces of the Desire to Receive for the Self Alone, and became a true being of sharing. On Lag Ba’Omer, we can connect to the soul of Rav Shimon, elevating our consciousness to a point that we can repair any separation from the Light. Through our connection, we can go back in time to negative events and correct our actions and intentions at the seed level. We can follow Rav Shimon’s example and use his assistance to transform ourselves, drawing infinite blessings while washing away selfishness and negativity.
