Here is what one of the ex Kabalah Center students posted on the Facebook earlier this month:
"October 3 at 1:27 AM ·
Update! I’m not alone, I know. And THANK YOU so sincerely to all of you who reached out personally. As a ger, the holidays are always a tough time. I’ve been to SO MANY beautiful sukkahs and been hosted by loving families & communities.
But then I go home. To me, myself, and I. And the gaping hole in my life left by what I thought was my path is quite clear & present.
But it’s just about finding my people. Those people were not my people. They never liked me much, anyway. And I stopped believing the BS they teach about suffering is happiness. (1984 anyone?)
So I guess I see it differently now, with the help of friends’ wise counsel. 1. Thank the Good Lord I’m outta there! And 2. My tolerance level for falsehood has plummeted to zero.
Onward & Upward!
(But I hope to continue to share my story, details and all, as I’m able to, without getting dragged down by it. I’d like to continue to write about it, expose their lies, and compile it all into a book.)
Suggested book titles:
Stay Far Away
Never ever ever ever ever step foot in a KC
It’s one thing to heal and deal with the pain the #KabbalahCentre has caused me personally.
But to have everyone I’ve ever known from there completely cut me off and stop talking to me after 13 years of being one of the most dedicated, committed and loyal students- it’s true, every criticism of that horrid place:
They do not care about you, your neshama, or your journey.
They only want your money
The lies, the manipulation, the spiritual falsehoods they spread.
The pain is unreal.
And the isolation and loneliness after leaving that #cult is one of the biggest reasons people continue to stay there.
People continue to go there, even after learning about some of the most horrific sexual, emotional, and financial abuses they’ve committed- AND CONTINUE TO COMMIT.
When I learned of the thousands of dollars my teacher defrauded me of, the KC offered me “some free Shabbat meals.”
Chicken isn’t going to pay my medical bills, students loans, or rent.
But it was their “litmus test” to see if I would remain in their horrific cult. They offered me free meals because it benefited them. The only people they care about: themselves.
I am still sick to my stomach to think that hundreds of thousands of dollars- that WE STUDENTS donated to a “non profit”- went to pay off and silence victims of sexual abuse. My stomach turns.
I’m sharing my personal experience to warn everyone I can: STAY AWAY FROM THE KABBALAH CENTRE OF THE BERG FAMILY.
Please share this post freely and widely."
