Kabbalah Centres Evolve and Grow Through the Years

With crime multiplying in the United States and around the world, many people are searching for spiritual answers to their everyday lives. Kabbalah is ancient wisdom that teaches its principles to help the student. Kabbalah was formed before the Jewish nation of Israel was formed in the land the God had given them. Much of the Kabbalah tradition originated during this time in history.

Kabbalists believe that there is joy inside each person, and instructors teach on the ancient concepts of how to attain the joy and happiness in everyday life. This wisdom is not actually studied like most disciplines, but rather the basic principles are taught so that each individual person can discover their own unique answers.

Kabbalah Centres are Established

In the recent history of Kabbalah, centers have been established around the world. Up until the 20th century, Kabbalah was only studied by the upper-class priests and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth and more information click here.

Today, with Kabbalah Centres, anyone interested can meet for instruction and to purchase materials. In 1922, the first Kabbalah Centre was established in Israel by RavAshtag. For over a decade, the elder Kaballahists translated ancient documents into Hebrew and studied in classes, before Rav and Karen Berg began studying under RavAshtag. They studied for over a decade, and in the 1960s, they moved back to the U.S. and established the first American Kabbalah Centre in NYC.

During the next decade, the Bergs translated ancient documents in many languages and instructed students. Soon, they founded a Centre in San Francisco and one in Los Angeles, and as of 2016, there are Kabbalah Centers in five American cities and Kabbalah Centres in 40 cities worldwide. With the Internet, the Bergs founded the Kabbalah University, which is streamed daily from the L.A. Centre and Kabbalah of Website.

If you live in close proximity to a Kabbalah Centre, you’ll find much more taking place than simply translations and instruction. The Centres today typically hold classes at regular times for the students, and they have dinners every month so members can have times of fellowship.

Karen Berg believes strongly in the power of volunteerism, so the Centres often volunteer their time and talent in the community they are in. Karen believes that the sense of giving is essential for a student to fully understand Kabbalahism.

Enriching the Classroom with ClassDojo

Over the past few years, technology has advanced in cultivating education and creating a positive culture in the classroom. Long gone are the days a parent has to wait for the once-a-semester parent-teacher conference to find out if their child is struggling in math class, or that they performed at the top of their class on any given activity. Education technology is the evolution of education from the ground up. Founded in 2011 by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, ClassDojo is a rapidly growing communication platform used to bridge the gap between students, their parents, and their teachers.

The ClassDojo app initiates a space of empowerment for the student in and out of the classroom. Teachers can create daily classroom activities and share videos, photos, and text messages with parents informing them of their child’s progress and participation. This form of interaction promotes a community that enables the parents to effectively engage in the milestones within their child’s educational process. Based in San Francisco, California, the app is used in 90% of k-8 schools in the United States, 180 other countries, and is available in 40 languages.

Stanford psychology professor, Carol Dweck discovered that when students believe being smart is not a fixed trait and that they can develop their abilities, they put forth time and effort to achieve their higher potential, rather than give up. This teaching resource is known as growth mindset. Used as a tool to shape the perception students have of their own ability to learn, ClassDojo and Stanford’s Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS) center joined forces to produce five animated videos on growth mindset incorporating the ClassDojo characters students are familiar with. The research from the videos is used to examine how the growth mindset message changes students’ engagement levels, if at all. According to USA Today, it is being used in more than half of all U.S. schools.  To check this,  visit the App’s linkedin.com page.

Recently, ClassDojo raised $31 million in venture funding for technology that connects educators to parents to foster effective communication about the student’s experiences at school. The co-founders are using the capital to expand their team and create content that would benefit parents. They do not want to generate revenue from users’ data. Instead, they are looking into creating features to enable parents to pay for items such as custom yearbooks, lessons, field trips, lunches, and supplies through the app.  Head over to this,  to read important details.
