It is intended to make life better, and as a result, make the entire world better.Spiritual tools are provided to students which are based on Kabbalistic Principles. Teachers are of many different ethnicities to provide teachings to students from around the world. The idea is to “receive”, which is the meaning of Kabbalah itself.
For centuries, the main focus of the Kabbalah Centre is to provide deep, spiritual connections. It believes that we can find deeper meaning in life and about the universe through our own actions. Kaballah allows us to connect with others.Kabbalists strive to be the best they can be, despite the teachings that earthly life is not as important as the afterlife. They also teach about connections between souls.

The Kabbalah Centre International is a intercontinental educational and spiritual organization dedicated to the teachings of the esoteric and mystical Jewish tradition of The Kabbalah. The organization was founded in 1984 by the prominent religious scholar and ordained rabbi, Philip Berg. In addition to a online site, the Kabbalah Centre also has several brick and mortar headquarters spread throughout Europe and the United States, their main headquarters are located in New York City Los Angeles and California.
The organization primarily functions as an educational institution that seeks to present the ideas and philosophies contained within the Zohar, the ancient core text of the Kabbalic Tradition. The Zohar is a compilation of various different documents, the majority of which are commentaries upon the Hebrew Torah. These documents are primarily exogesic texts which try to tease out the mystical, transcendental and often perennial aspects of the Bible.
The Zohar was written and taught, in times past, typically only to those who had achieved spiritual enlightenment, however, the Kabbalah Centre takes a different line and instead attempts to bring the Zohar and the myriad similar philosophies to a wider audience of those who might not have ever heard of the Hebrew Mystical Traditions, or of Perenialism or the Kabbalah and the Zohar. In this way the organization might best be viewed as a entry point to metaphysics, as a gateway to spiritual philosophy.
It should also be noted that despite the Zohar and the Kabbalic Traditions in general, religious tenor and connection, the Kabbalah Centre is not a explicitly religious organization and welcomes people of every creed and faith and even those who are not religious at all. Instead of focusing upon religious faith, the Kabbalah Centre focuses on knowledge and self understanding.
