In the past century, Kabbalah is becoming known throughout the world through the L.A. Kabbalah Centre. The study of this ancient wisdom is taught in classes both in the Centre and online, and anyone who’s interested is welcome to participate. It was only in 1922 that Rav Ashtag opened the first Kabbalah Centre in Israel.
Up until then, Kabbalah was only studied by the elders and priests in the Jewish Faith. Kabbalah is thousands of years old, originating in the time of Moses. Its principles are to study the purpose of life and the universe and then apply them to your life. Kabbalahists believe that there is joy in every person.
So, Kabbalah is not a religion, and many celebrities have found studying the principles of Kabbalah very beneficial in stabilizing their lives. More recent stars like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears attend the L.A. Centre, as well as celebrities from the last generation such as Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Sammy Davis.
Sandra Bernhard expressed in an interview that when she routinely attended the L.A Kabbalah Centre, the chaos in her life was reduced by 80 percent.
Paris Hilton also commented that when she broke up with her fiance Nick Carter, studying Kabbalah helped her to cope with life as well as changed your perspective. Kabbalah is defined as an “ancient wisdom that provides practical tools for creating joy and lasting fulfillment,” and many famous people go regularly to attain this goal. They also see it as a great understanding of their lives.
As of 2016, there are Kabbalah Centres in over 40 cities around the globe, but L.A. Centre is the largest and the center. Announcements about events are announced from L.A., which allow members to join in conferences and other meetings.
Madonna is a loyal follower of Kabbalah, and she has supported the construction of several Kabbalah Centres. One of the main principles of Kabbalah is the concept of giving, and the members participate in volunteering in the communities around them to learn this principle. The principles provide the tools for learning how to aply the wisdom to your life.
