The study of Kabbalah is growing in America and around the world. Since the first Kabbalah Centre was established in Israel in 1922, Kabbalah Centres have been started in over 40 cities worldwide. These Kabbalah Centres allow the ancient wisdom to be studied by anyone who is interested. In the Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre, which was established in the 1980s, a surprising number of non-Jewish celebrities are attending on a regular basis.
Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Sammy Davis are a few of the Kabbalah students from the last generation, but there are more of the younger stars attending the Centre today. Britney Spears, Madonna, Paris Hilton and Sarah Bernhard are all attending the L.A. Kabbalah Centre learning the principles of Kabbalah and benefiting.
Sarah Bernhard told the media that 80 percent of the chaos in her life is eliminated with Kabbalah. She goes to the Centre regularly, and she feels better. Paris Hilton says that it was the L.A. Kabbalah Centre that helped her cope with her break-up from her fiance.
The Kabbalah Centre online defines Kabbalah as the “ancient wisdom that provides practical tools for creating joy and lasting fulfillment.” Though it originated in the Jewish religion thousands of years ago, Kabbalah is not a religion. It is the principles of life that lead to making better decisions and finding the joy that is inside of every human. It is this simple belief that entices people, young and old, to find out more about this wisdom.
Chabad explains Kabbalah as the “soul of the Torah,” which will change your perspective of life and the world around you. The longer you study, the more you will see how the world works. Non-Jewish celebrities study Kabbalah and find the answers they need concerning their world and personal problems. The Kabbalah Centre also says that studying this ancient wisdom offers the student an overall plan of the universe, along with understanding more of the issues in our lives.”

On 23rd February 2017, the Trump administration decided to revoke the guidance found in US Public Schools allowing transgender pupils to use toilet facilities associated with their gender identity. This was a guidance that had been formulated in the Obama administration, and many people saw it as a win for those people who champion for transgender rights. As any other controversial issue, some saw this infringing the safety and privacy of other students. The trump administration achieved this by sending letters to affected schools terming the past measures as confusing. This was then followed by praise from conservative activists saying that the new system will be in place to protect students.
This comes at a time when the secretary of education was opposed to these changes. Despite agreeing with the changes publicly, a source close to the government said that she was completely opposed to these changes even arguing with the president about the issue. She, however, had to calm down after realizing that it’s the responsibility of the president to make decisions. She first expressed her dissatisfaction with the issue when she made a complaint to the attorney general Jeff Sessions. She was, however, summoned to the White House to be briefed on the issue.
In this briefing, she reminded the president that they had publicly promised American students protection against such unjust rules. She expressed her concern that this decision was against what she stands for. After agreeing with the president, Betsy Devos requested a letter by the president to assure students that she was acting in their best interests. Another source said that DeVos was in a dilemma about how the new changes will be implemented without harming students.
Betsy Devos concern can be understood as she has dedicated her life to helping reform the education system in the United States. Out of the $12 million that she donated in the year 2015, 26 percent went to the education sector. She concentrates on all schools worldwide as she does not discriminate. Some the institutions that she has supported include Northwood University, West Michigan Aviation Academy, and Ferris State University.

Parents have always had children who are in school. Of these parents, many have had to endure the chore of going to conferences with teachers. These conferences were often awkward and were something that they needed to do to ensure that their children were getting the best education possible. The conferences were difficult for both the teachers and the parents and became a major problem because of transportation and because of working to make sure that the children would not be present during the conferences. The new ClassDojo app has allowed parents to stop making conferences and freed up some time that the teachers have seen as valuable.
Class Dojo gives parents the chance to look and see what their children are doing on a daily basis. They can see whether or not the child was rewarded points for good behavior and the things that they have done. It has essentially eliminated the need to ask a child what they did in school: the question that is almost always vague without any concrete answer inside. It is a major shift in the way that things are done and the way that parents can now be included in their child’s daily school life.
The kids are not left out with the ClassDojo app. Each day, they are able to get points for the positive things that they do in the classroom. They are able to get the most out of these points by trading them in for prizes that are set up by the teachers to show that they are doing well. Children work hard and are able to even get things like free homework passes for the positive attitude that they had throughout the month and for the points on their ClassDojo.
Judaism goes back many thousands of years. For many centuries, Jews around the world have been working with ancient texts and seeking meaning from them. This process continues today at places over the world where Jews gather. One such place are the Kabbalah Centres. Here, Judaism and the ancient texts that help make Jews create a philosophy of their own are present, allowing for the exploration and understanding of such texts by Jews around the world. Those who are Jewish may have varied interpretations of their own Judaism, leading them to see the world of torah and other texts in different ways. Each Jewish person is welcome to study the world of kabbalah and see how it fits in with their own personal Jewish belief system. With their help, each Jewish person can also explore such texts further, allowing them a greater sense of connection with Judaism and their own religion as well as with other Jews all over the globe.
Becoming More Aware
When any Jew attends sessions at the Kabbalah Centre, they are learning more about their own religion. Judaism stresses that people want to have he opportunity to study and learn in a congenial setting. It also stresses that each person may learn at their own pace on their own time. This is also where studying with the Kabbalah Centre can prove ideal for any Jew anywhere. At the centre, each person has the chance to examine religious texts that have been influencing Jewish thought for centuries directly for themselves. They also get the chance to learn how such texts can directly offer them personal lessons about becoming a more moral person and a ultimately a better Jewish person. In doing so, all Jews have the chance to understand the wisdom of the ancient sages and see how it continues to influence Jewish thought at the present time. This allows all participants to work with someone who can guide them through such texts and offer a perspective that is both unique and highly informed at the same time. Thus study will benefit all concerned at the centre.
Bustle blogger Emily McClure felt a bit foolish, because she was about the only woman left on the planet who hadn’t tried the Wen hair no-lather shampoo system. She had seen the famous WEN TV infomercials showing celebrities with big, bouncy hair and held out hope that maybe the unique sephora endorsed cleansing formula could help boost her fine, frizzy hair.
Like most of us, Emily was used to the big lathers found in drugstore shampoos but unaware of the nasty detergents being added to these shampoos and conditioners. That’s why beloved celebrity stylist Chaz Dean took an holistic approach to his invention of a no-lather shampoo.
Chaz Dean developed WEN with natural botanical ingredients that gave strength and shine back to all types of hair. His special cleansing conditioners are so gentle and effective, that he has not used a lather shampoo on himself or his star clients since 1993.
Emily chose the FIG cleansing conditioner and hopped in the shower, agreeing to a 7-day test run of WEN for seven mornings for Bustle. She kept a hair diary and posted hair selfies.
As her hair got used to a thorough washing without lathery suds, WEN delivered in a great way, adding smoothness, high gloss and manageability to Emily’s limp locks. Her selfies displayed a voluminous, total beauty, healthy mane, and right away, close girlfriends gave the thumbs up to Emily’s new tresses.
Everything was proceeding perfectly, until Emily switched up the routine with a nighttime WEN wash. By morning, however, Emily claims her hair was a flop. Another time, Emily got lazy and skipped the hair wash, hoping WEN from the night before could sustain the volume. Again, her hair fell flat, unable to hold a style.
Emily loved what WEN delivered but admits WEN is not for lazy hair girls.
Class Dojo has been getting a lot of buzz and there is good reason for the attention that the app is getting. This has become one of the premier applications for communication in the school systems. Teachers like this app because it lets them communicate with parents. Decades ago there were PTA meetings that had a lot of parent participation. This is not really the case anymore. Parents will show up for things like open house, but that may be the only time during the school year that many parents interact with teachers.
The Class Dojo app is designed to bring this type of community gathering of parents back via technology resources. The great thing about the app is that this is giving parents a change to take a sneak peak into the lives of their children without breaking the bank. They don’t have to take time off from work, and most parents already have smart phones. This means that the participation rate with the Class Dojo app has the potential to be quite high because so many people already have the smart devices. All that they have to do is download the apps to their phones or tablets. Even people that do not have a smart device can typically pick up a Kindle tablet for less than $50. That is the great thing about an app like Class Dojo. It is a cost efficient way to communicate.
There is a love for the app because it reaches a multitude of people. It is already translated in 40 different languages, and the app has managed to get to parents and teachers in 180 countries. This is a fast growing app and form of communication that shows that technology will be the platform that is used to teach. It will also be the platform that is used to reach out to parents. That is why there is a lot of excitement about what can be done with the Class Dojo app.
This is a new era of learning and there is a new wave of communication in education. This app helps the parents, but it also helps the kids that are in the classes. It shows children that their parents are concerned about their progress, and them encourages the kids to do better. Class Dojo is working wonders for all the working parents that want to be active in lives of their children.
