Religious teachings have always been something many people have struggled to follow in a successful way over the course of their lives as many people are scared of being forced to alter their religious beliefs to find a new way of living. Kabbalah is a religious teaching that no longer requires the individual to change their religion as they look for the essence of God in the world around them, instead of looking for a personal relationship with a God that has a physical form.
The Kabbalah Center has a history dating back to 1965 when the initial form of the group was Philip Berg, who initially founded The National Research Institute of Kabbalah in the U.S. Further centers had been in existence in the U.S. since the 1920s before success was eventually founded in 1984 by Philip Berg with the aid of his wife Karen. Initial centers were opened in New York and Los Angeles before a global program saw The Kabbalah Center spread its reach across the globe.
There are many different aspects of the teachings of The Kabbalah Center that differ from the original teachings that date back to ancient times and made Kabbalah one of the most complex aspects of Judaism to study. A major difference is the fact The Kabbalah Center does not require individuals to learn Hebrew before taking on the study of this form of esoteric teaching. Many followers of the Kabbalah Center believe in the teaching of all major global religions being branches of a larger universal belief system that can be understood by all followers of any religion.
The opening of Kabbalah to all members of society came after a prolonged period of growth in interest of the teachings, which reduced the strict rules the majority of Rabbi’s had for teaching Kabbalah from the dawn of its earliest teachings. There are four levels of teachings individuals can pass through as they move towards a greater understanding of the ancient writings that form the basis of this impressive religious scripture.
