Legendary stars who have passed on were interested in or studied Kabbalah. This includes such luminaries like Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Sammy Davis, Jr. Both Taylor and Davis were converts to Judaism.
Kabbalah is adhered to and followed by a number of famous people today. This includes such celebrities as Paris Hilton and Madonna.
Paris Hilton has spoken many times about how Kabbalah, and the Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre, have provided an invaluable sense of balance to her life. She indicated that particularly was the case when her relationship with pop star Nick Carter came to an end.
Madonna is likely the best known celebrity connected to the Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre. She has been involved with Kabbalah studies for a couple of decades. In addition, she has established Kabbalah Centre branches in different locations in the United States. She is also financially generous with the organization.
The Kabbalah Centre initially was situated in United States in New York City. Operations began in the Big Apple in 1965. About 20 years later, in 1984, the Kabbalah Centre relocated to Los Angeles, where it remains headquartered today. The New York center was an offshoot of one in Israel, a center in that country founded in 1922.
In addition to its LA location, the Kabbalah Centre maintains locations in other major cities that include London, Toronto, and New York. The Kabbalah Centre also maintains branches in about 50 other cities. The Kabbalah Centre offers instruction online and through many different study groups located around the world.
The Kabbalah Centre maintains what some might call an open door policy. In other words, the Kabbalah Centre is not as restrictive as some other Kabbalah student centers when it comes to permitting people to participate. For example, a person interested in studying Kabbalah and the Kabbalah Centre need not have read Jewish or Hebrew texts to prepare for Kabbalah courses.
The more liberal approach to permitting people to study Kabbalah by the Kabbalah Centre has opened the doors to the practice to a wider swath of people. This literally includes people from all walks of life.
