Kabbalah Centre organization is headquartered in Los Angeles California and specializes in offering Zohar courses and Kabbalah lessons online. The non-profit organization also provides these lessons in regional and city centers, along with other worldwide centers.
Phillip Beg, the director of the Center, developed the presentation models with the collaboration of his wife, Karen Berg. The center integrates a multi-ethnic approach in teaching with the use of international teachers to educate on the Kabbalistic way and guide the international students of the Kabbalah community.
The establishment was a creation of Ray Phillip Berg, also known by his birth name Feievl Gruberger and Ray Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein in 1965. Yehuda operated as the dean of the center in Israel until his death. The Israeli center is a predecessor of the Kabbalah Center, dating 1922.
Phillip and his wife Karen Berg then took leadership of the center after spending several years in Israel and opened the now Kabbalah Center in New York City.
They also opened the Los Angeles Kabbalah center in 1984 and served as the centers’ teachers and directors in the absence of Ray Berg.
The center also has branches in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
According to ancient teachings, Rabbis strictly taught the Kabbalah teachings only to male students who had attained the age of forty. The motive had its roots in the belief that the Kabbalah teachings were too complex to be clearly understood by any other individual.
The center specializes in educating its followers on matters concerning topics they have categorized as:
