The Kabbalah Centre in the United States has its formative roots in the Middle East. The Kabbalah Centre can trace its origins to what was called Yeshivah Kol Yehuda. The Yeshivah Kol Yehuda was established in what eventually would become the modern state of Israel in 1925.
In 1965, two men involved with the Yeshivah Kol Yehuda would bring the teachings of that organization to the United States. Rav Philip Berg and Rav Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein established National Research Institute of Kabbalah in New York City in 1965. The National Research Institute of Kabbalah operated for about 20 years before the Kabbalah Centre was established in Los Angeles.
The Kabbalah Centre became the primary center for the organization’s studies and teachings beginning in 1984. Since the founding of the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles, the organization has been on a trend to expand. The Kabbalah Centre is a not-for-profit organization. Watch Kabbalah Video .
One of the reasons that the Kabbalah Centre has experienced significant growth since moving its headquarters to Los Angeles is the fact that it is an inclusive organization. Unlike some its more conservative predecessors, the Kabbalah Centre welcomes a wide swath of people to its teachings. Unlike more conservative Kabbalah organizations, the Kabbalah Centre does not require a person to have a background in Jewish and Hebrew text before becoming a part of its programming.
In addition to the LA Kabbalah Centre, the organization has established branches in about 50 cities around the globe. This includes branch centers in a variety of major cities like London and New York.
In addition to branch locations, the Kabbalah Centre also maintains hundreds of study groups, also around the world. The Kabbalah Centre now offers a growing number of its courses online.
Another of the reason the Kabbalah Centre has grown is the support it receives from celebrities like Madonna. Madonna has helped to establish Kabbalah Centre branches and has provided funding to the organization.
