Pop icon Madonna is one of the most famous entertainers in the United States, and around the world. Over the course of the past 20 years, she has been one of the best known practitioners of Kabbalah in the world at this juncture in time.
Madonna is associated with the LA Kabbalah Centre. Indeed, she is a major financial supporter of the LA Kabbalah Centre. In addition, she has been instrumental in establishing over 50 branches of the LA Kabbalah Centre in the past decade.
Madonna is not the only famous person associated with the LA Kabbalah Centre today. Hotel heiress Paris Hilton is a prime example of another celebrity associated with the LA Kabbalah Centre.
Hilton maintains that the Kabbalah Centre has been vital in helping her get through tough times in her own life. This included dealing with all of the challenges she faced when her relationship with Nick Carter came to an end some time ago.
Other celebrities who have been involved with Kabbalah include Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Sammy Davis, Jr. Both Taylor and Davis were converts to Judaism.
The doors to the Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre opened in 1984. The LA incarnation of the Kabbalah Centre was an outgrowth of an organization in New York City. In turn, the New York City center grew from a Kabbalah practice in the State of Israel. The Israeli organization was founded even before the establishment of the Jewish state, in 1925.
The LA Kabbalah Centre is more liberal in the manner in which it welcomes people to its courses and instruction. A person need not be versed in Jewish or Hebrew readings before becoming a part of the Kabbalah Centre.
