However, in the United States, the Kaballah was established in 1965 by Philip Berg. The Kabbalah Center was originally known as The National Research Institute of Kabbalah. Philip Berg’s birth name was Feivel Gruberger, but he changed it later. Rav Yehuda served as the dean of the Yeshiva Kol Yehuda when it was originally formed in Israel. Philip Berg and his wife had spent several years in Israel.
The couple later re-established the organization in New York City. Currently, the organization has more than 50 branches globally. Other branches are in Manhattan, Dallas, Boca Raton, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Medellin, Mexico City, Haifa, Tel Aviv, Miami, San Diego, Moscow, Warsaw, Berlin, and London. The sons of Philip Berg and Karen Berg, Yehuda Berg and Michael Berg, serve as the directors and spiritual leaders of the organization.
The Kabbalah Center International has had many celebrity followers over the years. Madonna was among the high profile celebrities that embraced the teachings from Kabbalah. She used to attend Kabbalah Center events, and also collaborated with the organization on a project called Raising Malawi. The project’s primary goal was to provide relief aid in Malawi. Her son was also a member of the organization.
Other celebrities who have been associated with the organization are Parris Hilton, Britney Spears, Naomi Campbell, Elizabeth Taylor, Alex Rodriguez, Sandra Bernhard, Ariana Grande, Heather McComb, James Van Der Beek, and Kylie Richards.
