Formally known as The National Research Institute of Kabbalah, the Centre was started by Philip Berg and Rav Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein in 1965. Before its formation, Yehuda Tzvi was a key figure in the Yeshivah Kol Yehud in Israel. Yeshivah Kol Yehuda, founded in 1922, was a precursor form of current US Kabbalah Centres. It was after the passing away of Brandwein that the Karen and Philip Berg decided to re-establish the U.S. Kabbalah Centre in New York. It was in 1984 that the centre in Los Angeles was opened by Philip Berg. Now the Kabbalah Centre International has over 50 branches across the world. New York, London and Toronto are among the major cities with Kabbalah centres. Some of the lessons passed on to students is the relationship between the Kabbalah teachings and other religions. It basically does not contradict other religions but supplement the religions.

Madonna, a famous pop singer, recently took interest in the Kabbalistic teachings and the Jewish Mysticism. Furthermore she has even opened a few Kabbalah centres and invested a lot in learning the tradition. It was after all these that a large number of celebrities are also taking interest in learning the traditions. Paris Hilton, Britney Spears are some of the examples of interested celebrities. According to a few of them, the Jewish tradition and practices help them cope with various issues and challenges they might encounter in life. Aside from that, other celebrities, like the late Sammy Davis, wanted to be connected to something much stronger than any other materialistic item. Although the teachings were meant for people over the age of 40 years, the lessons have been revolutionised. Nowadays almost anyone can join and get connected with the Jewish traditions and learn more about Kabbalah.
