Traditions of Kabbalah

The Torah is a vital part of Judaism. It holds for the Jewish the history of their people, and the prophecies and laws for them to seek out and adhere to. Much of what is known about the traditions of Judaism can be found in the Torah. Part of the study of the Torah is Kabbalah, a look at a few certain areas of their Holy Book. Kabbalah outlines a few specific doctrines to be discussed and studied more carefully, for the better understanding of the meanings within. While it’s roots are strong in Judaism, other religions, such as various Christian denominations, have adopted Kabbalah as well. Kabbalah itself is not a religion, but rather, a method of teaching certain aspects of religion. In Jewish culture, it is a method used to help younger members of the faith understand some of the more difficult to interpret passages of the Torah, especially those relating to the Infinite God and the Finite World. Kabbalah is filled with teachings of wisdom not only about the world, but also of the mind and body, arguably helping people become closer to God on many levels.

As stated in, the Kabbalah Centre, based in California, is a non-profit that offers educational help on the Zohar and Kabbalah. Philip and Karen Berg, the founders of this organization, believed that Kabbalah as he knows and loves it, should be shared with all of humanity, to not only bring everyone closer to God, but to each other as well. To this day, since it’s founding in 1922, the Kabbalah Centre has spread it’s reach to many parts of the world, working to bring people together and to share the wisdom of Kabbalah, even using online classes to further their reach.

The Centre not only offers teachings, but volunteer opportunities as well. They provide many opportunities for people to not only learn, but to help and connect with others. Study groups, event organizing, translations, and mentoring are only a few services people can choose to volunteer for. The Centre also offers many events, some of which are special classes with the leaders of the organization, that all people from all walks of life are welcome to participate in.
