Madonna has been the face of the Kabbalah Center in the recent past. The pop star was profoundly interested in the Kabbalah tradition and opened a Kabbalah center where people could learn it. Several Hollywood stars such as Sandra Bernhard, Britney Spears, the late Marilyn Monroe, and Paris Hilton were interested in the ancient teachings. Many people have wondered why these stars became interested in the tradition even though they did not have any Jewish ties. Some of them even went as far as converting to Judaism as a result of being transformed by the Kabbalah teachings.
Sandra Bernhard said that Kabbalah helped to remove a large part of the chaos in her life. Paris Hilton said that Kabbalah helped her to cope after she had broken up with Nick Carter. She added that she went there regularly because it aided her to deal with life. Many other celebrities agree with this and say that it gives them meaning when they are low. The website of the Kabbalah Center describes the teaching as ancient wisdom that led to joy and fulfillment. Chabad emphasizes that it reveals the deepest insight into the essence of God and the reason we were created. It gives a complete structure of the universe and an understanding of why some things happen in our lives.
The Kabbalah Center was established in 1922. It is the largest institution in the world offering Kabbalah teachings. They have around 50 locations globally, and there are thousands of students who they teach each week. The Kabbalah Center has a diverse team of teachers and instructors who improve the quality and delivery of the teachings that they offer. The headquarters of the center is in Los Angeles. Its first center was located in New York.
Rav Yehuda Ashlag started the Kabbalah Center in 1922. Rav Yehuda Brandwein took up the mantle and was later succeeded by Rav Berg. The center offers scholarships to people that want to learn Kabbalah but are unable to do so because of financial difficulties. This is in line with their mission to spread Kabbalah to people all over the world. They are also involved in charitable initiatives and have offered relief assistance to disaster-stricken areas over the years.
