Kabbalah Charities Bringing Light to the World
April 9, 2017
The Kabbalah Centre is present in over 70 countries and takes on a rather significant social responsibility in being a charitable organization. Known as the “KCCC-Kabbalah Centre Charitable Causes” brings help to those in need of both physical and charitable need. The charity summarizes it best with their statement: “Kabbalah is not a philosophy. Kabbalah is work to be done. The kabbalists of the past were people of action. They were constantly traveling from town to town, sharing, giving charity, and assisting people in creating better lives for themselves.”
The charitable organization has led efforts assisting alongside organizations such as The American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and Partners in Health to provide relief and extensive humanitarian efforts to these devastated places during natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy as well as the earthquake in Haiti and the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.
The Zohar Project is an effort to bring the ancient and sacred text to mass amounts of people, which is what kabbalists believe is what will rid the world of chaos, pain, and suffering. The group’s mission is to bring it to all those that are interested in learning about it and to make Kabbalah accessible to those who might not have the resources to otherwise learn these teachings. Over 200,000 Zohars have been donated as a result of their efforts.
The Kabbalah Centre Scholarship fund also aims to bring both new and currently involved students access to resources that may be outside their financial means. They provide materials and Zohars to those who are in need but have a strong desire to improve their lives through studying Kabbalah.
There are several other organizations that kabbalists support. Spirituality for Kids teaches kids the same three step process of growing spiritually and helps them through promoting a healthy self-image and other core values. Kids Creating Peace aims to teach kids who may be facing “internal and societal conflicts” using teachings of Kabbalah in areas that The Kabbalah Centre identifies as challenging. The program also seeks to educate parents, teachers and other community leaders to also foster this same sense of spirituality. The Kabbalah Kids Academy is a more traditional education setting, encompassing all subject areas and also incorporating Kabbalist studies as part of the curriculum.

How Kabbalah Can Improve Your Life
Kabbalah is Judaism’s spiritual and mystical side. It revolves around a document called the Zohar, which contains spiritual and mystical interpretations of the Torah. The Torah is the holy book of Jews and is the main tenet of Judaism. The Zohar is attributed to a rabbi by the name of Simon Bar Yochai. He is considered to be one of the great kabbalists of all time. In the Zohar, Rabbi Simon Bar Yochai condensed many years and works of Kabbalah study and interpretations.
If one wants to study Kabbalah seriously, then he or she must study the Zohar at least briefly. Of course, the Zohar is not the only work on Kabbalah but it is considered to be the main one and one of the most extensive ones available. Many other works on Kabbalah are based on it.
For example, according to Kabbalah, there was an event similar to the big bang from which the universe and all life forms sprang up from. There is also an attempt of Kabbalah to explain the purpose of life. There is a physical or wordly realm where we reside and there are other higher realms where the spirits reside. Kabbalah says that we can connect to the higher realms through our dreams, meditation and when we do noble things.
Where You Can Study Kabbalah And Learn More About It
The Kabbalah Centre is a religious study organization that was founded in 1984 in Los Angeles, California by Rabbi Philip Berg. The founder, Rabbi Berg believed that everybody should be able to study Kabbalah and glean wisdom from it to improve their lives. Before the Kabbalah Centre made Kabbalah available to the layman, Kabbalah study was mostly restricted to scholars such as Rabbi Berg.
Today the Kabbalah Centre continues the mission of Rabbi Philip Berg by hosting classes in its Los Angeles campus and dozens of other locations around the world. If you cannot reach a Kabbalah Centre location, you can study Kabbalah from your home via online classes taught by a Kabbalist.
