Hollywood Stars and the Study of Kabbalah

Making its rise in popularity among Hollywood celebrities is Kabbalah, a branch of Judaism that promotes learning the essence of God and the purpose and plan for the creation of the universe. Typically, Kabbalah is reserved for study by individuals over the age of 40 and who are of the Orthodox Jewish faith. While Orthodox Jews have been highly critical of the Kabbalah Centre located in Los Angeles, the growth in popularity has not slowed with Hollywood stars. Such celebrities that have become interested in studying this Jewish tradition include Madonna, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Sandra Bernhard, and even Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Before her death, Elizabeth Taylor began studying Kabbalah, which ultimately led to her converting to Judaism. Elizabeth Taylor was involved in pro-Israel activism and helped to film a documentary on Genocide and the Holocaust. Other celebrities that have announced interest and belief in Kabbalah believe that it provides stability in a world that can be chaotic and less than perfect.

The Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles, California is founded on the study of the origin of creation and the spiritual laws that govern the universe. This non-profit organization was founded in 1922 by Rav Yehuda Ashlag and now has over 40 locations worldwide. The Kabbalah Centre has a variety of different courses of study that are offered as classes and lectures at the centre and the study of Kabbalah is available through audio and book products. For those that cannot make it to the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles, online courses are open to those who still want to study the faith.

At the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles, there are weekly and monthly events for individuals to participate in lectures, meditations and partake in meals together. To reach further individuals who cannot attend the events, the Kabbalah Centre live streams the events online. To experience the study of Kabbalah outside the centre people can experience touring energy sites where kabbalists have been buried and have written the ancient texts that are studied today. The kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles also gives 24-hour availability to mentors and teachers for those that are new to the study of Kabbalah.

Sam Boraie on a Mission to Develop the city of New Brunswick

Sam Boraie is the son of the great visionary and founder of the Boraie Development, a successful real estate developer. Omar Boraie was among the first few people who bought properties in the crime-infested area of his old New Jersey town of New Brunswick(https://local.yahoo.com/info-11014537-boraie-realty-new-brunswick) and has since then wanted to develop the area through developing the real estate in the area. For this reason, he established the Boraie Development and Sam Boraie is the Vice President of the company today who is taking the visions of his father forward.

Among all the children of Omar Boraie, Sam is the one who is taking an active part in the company’s planning and development. Shaq O’Neil wanted to return to his roots to Newark, and for this purpose, he sought the help of Sam. Together, they built the One Riverview Buildings in Newark. This is an iconic building that bought youngsters back to the area who were unable to live the expensive life in New York. Another significant step taken by Sam is the development of the Atlantic City. When Atlantic City was on the verge of running dry and was falling out in the real estate market, Sam developed a luxury condo project in the area for them, which changed its ranks in the real estate industry to a considerable extent.

According to Bloomberg, among the top executives of the Boraie Development, Sam Boraie is the person who has helped take the company to the height it is today. He has been actively associated with all the major projects of the Boraie company such as the Albany Street Plaza Two Building, the One Spring Street building and the famous Aspire project. Real estate skills come to him naturally, but he is more than a businessman. He is among the city leaders to devote time and money to the development of the community. He is passionate about his community and takes part in a number of different activities to lift the spirits of the people in need.

Another one of Sam’s love is the State Theatre in New Brunswick.  It hosts live performances and movie shows for free so that the entire community can come together and be a part of it. These shows are sponsored by Sam Boraie and his company who takes pride in doing so.
