There was curiosity all over the world when a non-Jewish Hollywood icon, Madonna, visited the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles. Even more intriguing were the regular visits to the Kabbalah by several other Hollywood stars such as Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, the late Elizabeth Taylor, the late Sammy Davis, the late Marilyn Monroe, and Sandra Bernhard, who all became deeply interested in Jewish Kabbalah.
People were of course bound to ask, “Why does Jewish mysticism fascinate non-Jewish Hollywood stars?”
Madonna even opened several Kabbalah centers. Many Hollywood celebrities practice Jewish mysticism routinely while some have converted to Judaism.
Kabbalah is Ancient Wisdom
Sandra Bernhard, a frequent guest at the Los Angeles Kabbalah Center, says that Kabbalah is ancient wisdom. Sandra claims that Jewish mysticism helped her to end 80 % of the disorders in her life. Paris Hilton told Great Britain’s More Magazine that the Kabbalah helped her cope after she split with Nick Carter. Hilton, who now wears a Kabbalah bracelet, agrees that Kabbalah is “olden wisdom that provides useful tools for creating happiness and life-long fulfillment.”
Kabbalah is the Soul of the Torah
Kabbalah, often describes as the core of Judaism, can transform people’s view of the world. The Kabbalah Center in Los Angles makes you understand the essence of God, the principles of creation, God’s plan for the universe, and the reasons for human existence.
The Kabbalah Center is part of the 5,000-year-old history. Sammy Davis, an African-American, states that Jewish mysticism gives him inner strength and spiritual peace. Davis’s emotional attachment to Kabbalah arises from the similarity between the historical oppression of both the Jews and African-Americans.
However, the Kabbalah Revolution in Hollywood is not all about solving personal challenges. Madonna told the Time Magazine in 2006 that the Kabbalah Center inspires her to help the underprivileged globally. Elizabeth Taylor who even converted to Judaism, the Kabbalah is the basis of her pro-Israeli advocacy.
The Kabbalah Center International in Los Angeles, California, is a non-profit organization providing the Zohar and Kabbalistic education online. The multi-ethnic staff at the center led by its director Philip Berg and his wife Karen Berg offers Kabbalistic studies worldwide.
