Enlightening the World; Bridging the Spiritual Gap

Religion has been manipulated to create unfavorable conditions for many people making it unpopular. This happens because many people do not really understand the essence of religion. Religion should illuminate by helping to draw the relationship between spiritual divinity and physical existence. For this to be achieved, a transcendence of some kind is needed. This transcendence goes beyond religion, structured education, race, background and political leaning. It is on this premise that the first Kabbalah Centre was set up.

Rav Yehuda Ashlag, a devout Jew, launched the first Kabbalah center a century ago. Today, there are Kabbalah centers in more than forty cities around the globe. More importantly, Kabbalah center’s online presence makes it available anywhere on the planet. You do not have to be above 40 years of age or be this that to partake in the Kabbalah tradition. Unlike in the earlier times when knowledge about God was hoarded and disseminated discriminately among a closely guarded clique of Jewish Lawmen.

The Kabbalah Center, an embodiment of the Kabbalah spirit and kabbalists that have been since the earliest of times. The religious center seeks to spread divine knowledge through teaching, publishing and distributing Kabbalah literature (Zohar). The Kabbalah Center boasts of a dedicated team of teachers who have specialized in handling diverse student needs.

The type of education provided at The Kabbalah Centre is aimed at personal transformation. The teachers at the center help students to recognize that respecting the dignity of others is central to creating a better world for all. A racist, terrorist, or supremacist suffers from a distorted worldview, brought about by ignorance of how that person or others are connected to God. While the view might have widespread support and wide acceptance, the education aims to dismantle the basis on which such biased opinions about others originate.
