Kabbalah Centre publishes "Chumash"

The Kabbalah Centre has published a Chumash. Chumash comes from the Hebrew word for five, and it refers to the Five Books of Moses. This Chumash is unique in that it gives a Kabbalah commentary to the Pentateuch! I have just got this Chumash, which is one volume - on the first book of the Pentateuch.

The Chumash is edited by Yehuda Berg, Rav Berg and Karen Berg's son.

God's names

The names of God have great power. Simply reading - or even scanning with your eyes - these names can lead to many positive outcomes. The Kabbalah Center, founded by Rav Berg and his family, has brought the Kabbalah and Kabbalah studies to the masses and to the public's conscience. The Kabbalah Centre incorporates the reading, scanning and chanting of the Kabbalistic divine names.

Interestingly, these names are all in Hebrew - Kabbalah is based in the Jewish religion, and as with the whole basic framework of all the major works of Judaism, are in Hebrew.

The question...

Are all the answers available on the internet?
I have questions about life and I do not know where to look for the answers. The easiest thing to do is simply sit at home, log in to the internet and find the sites that can offer me some quiet contemplation. Anyone know about the study of Kabbalah online - and more importantly, whether it can help understand life?

The Light Center of Kabbalah

The Kabbalah can bring light into one's life. The light of spirituality and warmth of a quality life. There are so many lessons to be learned from religion and spiritual topics, that it is wonderful to see the increased interest in improving and growing oneself. The Kabbalah Centers across the world have seen great successes in getting the masses to attend their various activities and it is the beauty of them trying to improve people's lives with the light of the Kabbalah that has certainly added to the appeal and achievements of the Kabbalah Centre.

Kabbalah centers on Zohar

A bunch of my friends have told me that the central text of the Kabbalah is the Zohar. This is an ancient work written by a Jewish Sage over 1800 years ago, and it forms the basis for the Kabbalah.

The problem is that this text is in Hebrew, or even worse, Aramaic - so there is no way to understand. The good thing is that if you are looking for anything today, you simply go and online and research it. There aren't any translations that I know of, but places like the Kabbalah Center (The one with Rav Berg and his wife Karen and his kids Michael and Yehuda Berg) offer classes in English on Kabbalah.

So, Kabbalah centers on the Zohar and other foreign language texts, but there are people - like at the Kabbalah Centre - who will do the work of translating and explaining it.

Opening Worlds

The Kabbalah Center has opened the world of the Kabbalah to the public who cannot understand the classic Hebrew and Aramaic texts of the Kabbalah. Rav Berg has studied and continues to study the original Kabbalah texts, in the original Hebrew and Aramaic, and through the Kabbalah Center which he founded, he disseminates this content to anyone who so desires to study it. The Kabbalah Centre is run by Rav Berg together with his wife, Karen Berg, and also his two sons. For anyone toying with entry into the world of Kabbalah, it is essential that the Kabbalah Center be considered.

Kabbalah is an intellectual pursuit

Even today, when there seems to be an overwhelming international effort to separate state and religion, there are very few communities that are not led – at least in part – by an intellectual combined with moral/religious leadership. It is thus essential when choosing a field of intellectual interest that its intellectual value be considered together with its moral and ethical worth. (Consider the tremendous impact Rav Berg's students are having.)

The field of Kabbalah is a prime example of an intellectual pursuit that has engaged humanity throughout our known history. The Kabbalah texts we have today have existed for over 2000 years, while the Kabbalah itself as a science and field of study has been existence for over 4000 years. Aside from a rich history and the deepest dimensions of thought and investigation, the Kabbalah is an entire world of ethics and morality which enriches whoever comes into contact with it, ask anyone who has attended lectures and classes at the Kabbalah Center for their impressions of Kabbalah in this respect.

Something to consider before studying Kabbalah or attending lectures at Kabbalah Centers. For an introduction to philosophical thought it is essential that one turn to the correct sources. There are many schools of philosophy that one may consider, and as far as intellectual study, it is quite clear that the examination and investigation required to delve into any one of these schools will lead to accomplishments and achievements. Of course, as with any study, after mastering the approaches of the various schools, one will see the strengths and weaknesses of each school, and naturally, one will gravitate to one school over another.

The pursuit of knowledge and intellectual accomplishment has stood at the center of society throughout the ages, and this is something which has improved society and urged change and advancement. While the existence of an independent academia has been prevalent in societies across the globe, often it is the intellectual establishment that provides the leadership – both lay and religious – that stands at the helm. Religious leadership has flourished in different societies. Of course, there are those where it flourished more, and other cultures where is flourished less. Look at the flourishing of the Kabbalah Centre, for an example of something that has flourished in our times.
