In the summer of 2012, the Mexico Kabbalah Centre launched a special outreach program in an effort to provide powerful kabbalistic tools to people living in correctional facilities in Mexico City. Proyecto Ser, which literally means ‘Project To Be’, is named for its acronym in Spanish, Proyecto Socio Emocional de Reintegración, or the ‘Social and Emotional Reintegration Project’. Since the program’s inception, 1,585 inmates have been reached. This year, Proyecto Ser has undertaken the teaching of ongoing Kabbalah classes in a total of five men’s and women’s prisons in...

Zohar ProjectCOI This past week the Correctional Outreach Initiative received this letter from a female inmate at Coleman Federal Correctional Complex, Florida. My coal will turn into diamonds….
"I would like to thank you for delivering the Zohar. Zohars were not only delivered to the women's camp, but to the entire complex which includes the men's low, medium and 2 maximum security prisons. I cannot tell you how much kabbalah has changed my life. I thank God every day for providing me with the tools and teachings of kabbalah. I know that my incarceration has a greater meaning which someday soon, through the tools of kabablah, I will understand better. I also know that there is a diamond in the rough. My coal will turn into diamonds and my chaos will turn into miracles... Read More

The students of the Kabbalah Centre are reaching out in an effort to bring the wisdom of Kabbalah to those in correctional institutions. The Kabbalah Centre’s broad base of volunteers reach out in two ways:  The first, by sending out Kabbalah Centre books as well as participating in a pen pal exchange with incarcerated men and women.

The efforts of the Kabbalah Centre’s volunteers have not gone unnoticed.  In a recent letter from Lee Harris, Chaplain of Green Rock Correctional Center in Virginia, he wrote, “... Read More

In the midst of such chaos in my life, I have been able to find peace through studying Kabbalah. Without any doubts whatsoever, I would highly recommend anyone to call. I am so thankful for The Kabbalah Centre, because it has made all the difference in my spiritual growth and development.

Kabbalah is the best gift I have had this year. But it did not come easy. It is a result of a lot of hard, focused, and disciplined work my teacher guided me through. Often I had to go out of my comfort zone to apply the tools. But the satisfaction and confidence I now feel is indescribable.

- Sam Parnaso

Now I look back and question what exactly I did and how I managed without these teachings in my life.
