Here it is, this was why Madonna fell out with the fake Kabbalah Center.. it was a while back now. ‘As the Bergs' fortunes increased, so did the scrutiny of their organization. The Centre has faced a number of scandals, the most damaging of which came to light, ironically, because of Madonna. According to a Newsweek expose, the singer raised $18 million dollars through her Raising Malawi

Today there's an article in The Guardian that Madonna is preaching conspiracy theory nonsense about Covid virus. Does Kabbalah Centre stay out of medical affairs or are they teaching folks to peddle medical dis

In 1986, a young Madonna used her celebrity status to teach and normalize ways to prevent transmission of the deadly virus, incorporating safer sex information into her concerts. Google search results. Today, 2020, decades later, what is Madonna doing?

Dear light34: Madonna is renowned for being strong minded, not weak. And she's the most valuable conquest Kabbalah Centre has made. KC has acquired its subjects because of its many years experience in grooming and recruiting -- and by NOT telling people full information about what will be done to them after they get emotionally involved. Best move you can make is education. T

Here is what one of the ex Kabbalah Center students posted on Facebook to explain the dirty tricks used by Kabbalah Center in Moscow to minimize the sex scandals damage.

The terms you're using: "abused", "harassed" are vague, which is why I inquired about the nature of the behavior or incidents. I looked up that LA case, and it said Berg plied a follower with alcohol and drugs to have sex with her (rape). It's helpful to know the details of such cases, as the decisions can be used as legal precedents for cases of sexual misconduct an
