Kabbalah is a spirituality that originated when Moses and the early Jewish population were being established in Israel. While they created the religion of Judaism, the Kabbalah mysticism remained with the beliefs and principles of the universe. Kabbalah was studied by the priests, rabbis and other men in the upper echelons of Judaism.
So, up until the early 20th century, Kabbalah was studied by only a few in the population. But in 1922, an elder Kabbalahist Rav Ashtag began the first Kabbalah Centre in Jerusalem, Israel. When he did that, the entire system of Kabbalah was changed. The Centre was open to all who were interested, and the elders became the instructors. Rav and Karen Berg studied for 10 years, and then came back to America and opened five Kabbalah Centres here.
Today, there are Kabbalah Centres in 40 cities around the world, so people can come to the Centre that they choose. The largest Centre is located in Los Angeles, which the Bergs started in the 1980s. Now that the internet has become a way of life, the largest Centre is streaming online from the L.A. Centre, and anyone who has a computer, tablet or iPhone is able to take classes, read meditations, or hear about all the Centres worldwide.

The study of Kabbalah has become fascinating and extremely helpful for many celebrities. In the past, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Sammy Davis were frequent members of the Centre. The more recent crowd, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Sarah Bernhard, and Madonna are found attending classes and simply attending the Kabbalah Centre for spiritual enlightenment.
Paris Hilton went through a tremendous breakup with her boyfriend Nick Carter, and she claims that she would not have made it if she hadn’t been in Kabbalah. Madonna is such a dedicated follower that she has donated funds for several other Kabbalah Centres to be built. It is obvious that these celebrities, as well as others, are benefitting from studying the principles of Kabbalah.
