The Kabbalah Centre was born out of the desire of Rav Berg to see the Kabbalistic and Zohar teachings made more accessible to the world. Along with his wife Karen, Rav Berg brought that vision to life. Through the physical Kabbalah Centres in over 40 cities across South America, Africa, The Middle East, Asia, North America, and Europe, students can visit The Kabbalah Center nearest them to connect to one another and their teachers.
Various books, online seminars, and other resources are still available to students who live outside of these areas so that they can receive the same information with as much spiritual potency as the students receive in the physical Kabbalah Centre locations. Rav Berg and Karen Berg not only shared the beauty of Kabbalah with the world, but they also instilled a true compassion for Kabbalah in their son Michael. Teaching him both English and Hebrew languages, Rav Berg and Karen also gave Michael the desire to learn Aramaic.
Michael has gone on to translate Aramaic text to develop the English version of The Zohar. This is one of the core texts of Kabbalah, and Michael’s passion for these teachings didn’t just end there. In 2007, Michael started The Zohar Project, which is a charitable initiative of The Kabbalah Centre. This is an initiative that provides the wisdom of the Zohar to people throughout the world. Since its inception, over 200,000 Zohar texts have been given to individuals and groups such as The Japanese Embassy and the United Nations.
