Demi Moore, Roseanne and Sandra Bernhard are reportedly students of it; Madonna is building a school for it; and many are wearing fashions based on it.
The 10-year-old Boca Raton Kabbalah Centre, affiliated with the Kabbalah Learning Centre. in Los Angeles, is building a new 37,000-square-foot home at its current location at 8411 W. Palmetto Park Road. The new building will include an international healing and retreat center.
There are about 250 people attending weekly classes at the Boca Raton center. The new building will hold 720 people in just the main room.
Kabbalah, which means "receiving" in Hebrew, traditionally was not taught to anyone under age 40, but the Kabbalah Learning Centre welcomes everyone, regardless of age, to study Kabbalah.
"In Kabbalism, the whole situation of the Bible and what you've grown up on have all been misunderstood," said Rabbi Abe Hardoon at a recent Introduction to Kabbalah lecture.
According to the rabbi, the Book of Formations, written by Abraham, contains many secrets of the universe. When Abraham refers to one god, Hardoon said, he actually is referring to energy.
"The first rule of Kabbalism is the energy in the universe is endless and always flowing. That energy is available to all of us in all its forms," said Hardoon, "We do not know how to be a recipient of this energy."
