THE KABBALAH CENTRE

By supporting the Kabbalah Centre you are helping to affect the greatest amount of change at the most fundamental level.

Kabbalah Centre locations and Student Support outreach services have delivered life-changing kabbalistic wisdom and tools to millions of people worldwide. The Best Kept Secret free introductory events have shared the teachings with over 15,000 newcomers so far, and Kabbalah University (ukabbalah.com) provides a vital link for students spanning 70 countries. Each year tens of thousands of Kabbalah Centre publications are purchased in bookstores around the world, and translated into various languages. Utilizing the many technological platforms available today, the Kabbalah Centre is constantly developing new methods for making the transformational wisdom of Kabbalah available to all. With the launch of Kabbalah Museum (kabbalahmuseum.org), the Centre has created a virtual archive to preserve and showcase rare manuscripts spanning the lineage of great kabbalists throughout the ages.
Community Outreach activities enable local Kabbalah Centre students to put the concept of sharing into action by volunteering their time to help those in need through toy drives, meal programs and special events to benefit the community.
Your kind support, whether through a special gift or ongoing tithing contributions, directly impacts the lives of others as they discover the practical wisdom of Kabbalah for themselves.
 
KABBALAH CENTRE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION (KCCF)
 
Kabbalah is not a philosophy or theosophy. Kabbalah is work to be done. The kabbalists of the past were people of action. They were constantly traveling from town to town, giving charity, and assisting people in creating better lives for themselves.
 
This is why, in addition to classes and events, The Kabbalah Centre created The Kabbalah Centre Charitable Foundation (KCCF). The Foundation is committed to sharing financial and other resources to people in need, as well as creating long-term programs that benefit the local and global community. This is achieved by identifying urgent and critical needs around the world and establishing effective responses that address the unique circumstances.
 

The KCCF has played a role in numerous disaster relief efforts including the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and the creation of ‘Project Haiti’ to address recovery efforts following the devastating earthquake in Haiti. 
 
 
PROJECT HAITI
 
Following the widespread destruction caused by the earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, Project Haiti was launched to provide medical services, clean drinking water and mini Pinchas Zohars to communities in crisis.  This effort has been made possible through a network of partnerships involving Kabbalah Centre volunteers and international relief organizations, such as Food For The Poor, 2life18, and Partners In Health.
 
Project Haiti worked with Partners In Health to fund five mobile clinics at campgrounds for displaced people in the capital of Port-au-Prince. These mobile clinics were located in four of the largest camps and provided basic medical care to an estimated population of 80,000 to 100,000 displaced people.
 

In addition, Project Haiti has distributed over 40,000 liters of clean drinking water and 10,000 mini Pinchas Zohars to various communities throughout the country. Distribution spanned Port-au-Prince, the Central Plateau and Haiti’s second largest city, Cap-Haïtien. The shipment was consigned to Food For The Poor, and the goods were delivered to primary medical facilities, orphanages, NGO distribution centers, resettlement camps, women’s outreach programs, and community development villages in rural areas who had yet to receive water.

Our work in Haiti continues. With your support, there’s no limit to what we can achieve by empowering these communities with the tools they need to sustain long-term change.   

 

 
“We are very grateful to the Kabbalah Center Project Haiti supporters for the critical support that is helping to make this work possible.”

THE ZOHAR PROJECT

The single mission of the Zohar Project is to share the Zohar with the purpose of illuminating the world with spiritual light and therefore removing negativity.
As many of us have come to know, The Zohar - the kabbalistic commentary on biblical and spiritual matters composed over 2,000 years ago, is not merely made of paper and ink. In truth, it is a brightly shining star of spiritual light. When only one star shines, the shadows may be held in check, but darkness nevertheless encroaches. When thousands of stars shine, they create a galaxy of light that can never be extinguished. By publishing and distributing the Zohar, The Kabbalah Centre is spreading a spiritual light whose destiny is to illuminate the entire world.
A network of 142 Zohar Project volunteer teams spanning 95 countries around the world are committed to distributing free copies of the Zohar to local organizations in recognition of their service to the community. In the last year alone, over 50,000 Zohars have been donated to hospitals, embassies, places of worship, universities, non-profits, emergency services, pilots, troops, presidents, medical professionals, humanitarian aid workers and more.  
The Kabbalah Centre receives countless letters of gratitude from Zohar recipients as a result of this global distribution. Many recipients describe positive occurrences which they attribute to the connection they have with the Zohar.
 
By supporting the Zohar Project, you are not only helping to fulfill the vision of this historical initiative, but helping to create a new reality of peace and serenity in the world.

CORRECTIONAL OUTREACH INITIATIVE (COI)

The Correctional Outreach Initiative (COI) provides Kabbalah Centre publications and classes to people from all backgrounds within the correctional system such as prisoners, ex-offenders and parolees.

Each week, COI responds to requests from inmates, family members and chaplains to provide Kabbalah books and materials to those who wish to break through victim mentality and cycles of crime. 

The COI classes help those in the correctional system to evolve into their “ultimate selves” by creating lasting hope and positive self-awareness.
 
COI was created in response to an outpouring of pleas for help by people from all over the world who are currently suffering from challenged circumstances. We welcome your support to bring the transformational tools of Kabbalah to those who need it most.
 
“We are in receipt of the books from The Kabbalah Centre and want to take this time to thank you so much for helping our inmates. Already, one of our men has enthusiastically begun to read the 72 Names of God Meditation Book. It is through kindness such as this that men's lives can be changed and on behalf of them, I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate this.”

SFK - SUCCESS FOR KIDS www.sfk.org
 
SFK - Success for Kids was founded in 2001 to address the urgent need around the world for an intervention program for children whose daily circumstances result in feelings of anguish, hopelessness, and worthlessness that often manifest as adverse behaviors.
 
SFK is an international non-profit organization dedicated to empowering at-risk children and adolescents to become resilient, productive citizens through its unique, research-based programs. SFK enhances four personal strengths (interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence, problem-solving skills, and improved self-sufficiency) and gives students a greater sense of purpose in their lives.
 
Since SFK was established in 2001, the organization has provided more than $25 million in direct service program support impacting more than 60,000 children and adolescents worldwide.
 
SFK’s Youth Program is a multi-faceted prevention program with the mission of enriching adolescents and enabling them to become the purpose-driven engineers of their own lives. Skills taught through the SFK Youth program provide students with techniques to make effective and positive choices thereby working to avoid the negative effects of poor decisions. As they learn the principles of the program, teens begin to understand that no matter what their current circumstances happen to be, they can transform adverse behaviors into resilience, purpose and draw on their inner power to change their lives.
 
 

Kabbalah Children’s Academy (KCA) www.kabbalahacademy.net

The Kabbalah Children’s Academy (KCA) has been developing young minds and hearts for more than 10 years. The school was founded on the concept of offering children a well-rounded education, while at the same time allowing them to discover the keys to unlocking their gifts and abilities, while encouraging them to bring those talents out into the world.
 
Every program, from Kabbalah Studies to Math to Fine Arts, encourages the students to speak out and play a role. KCA education provides empowerment-based teaching in a small, nurturing setting.
 
Each student is given personal attention and encouragement to grow academically, emotionally, socially, physically, and spiritually. Our philosophy is that when kids learn from an early age that they affect the world, they are inspired to live a life with purpose.
