See Details About This CN Advisory

On December 3, 2013, The Los Angeles Times reported that Kabbalah Centre International was, or may continue to be, a subject of a material diversion of assets in an article titled, "Kaballah Centre accused of misusing more than $1 million in donations." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see The Los Angeles Times article.

On January 18, 2014, Daily Mail UK reported on the charges of improper conduct allegedly taking place at Kabbalah Centre International Incorporated, in an article titled, "Top Rabbi at celebrity Kabbalah center 'molested student then threatened to kill her'." For more information regarding this matter, please see Daily Mail UK article.

  • On November 24, 2015, The Los Angeles Times published an article titled, "Jury orders Kabbalah Centre and former director to pay $177,500 in sexual assault lawsuit." For more information, please see The Los Angeles Times article.

The nature of these allegations of illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator.
