One undercover reporter, who has suffered from cancer, went to the London Kabbalah Centre – a £3.7million building off Oxford Street – seeking help, and was offered a package of remedies for the disease for £860. The cost included nearly £400 for 10 cases of Kabbalah water, £150 for “extra-strength” water and £289 for Zohar books – the Kabbalah “bible”. The Zohar is also said to have special powers which followers can benefit from by running a finger over the text as if reading Braille.
An undercover reporter involved in a hidden-camera BBC documentary was told by Eliyahu Yardeni, a muckamuck at the London Kabbalah Centre, that the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust died because they didn’t use Kabbalah. In other words, they brought it on themselves. His claim was reproached by a Kabbalah scholar and rabbi in Ontario, who called it “one of the most obscene statements anybody could make.” Apparently, the Kabbalah Centre in London is regarded as an opportunistic sect (founded by millionaire Philip Berg) of the Jewish mysticism, and its sole purpose is to extract riches from the famous by promising health, wealth, and happiness.
