The Kabbalah Centre Provides New Understanding of Ancient Teachings

Kabbalah means “receiving” or “tradition” in Hebrew. It is a discipline and school of thought that originated from Judaism. The characterization can be different depending on the tradition and aims of those following it. Kabbalah Centre is a set of obscure teachings used to define the relationships between an invariable, endless and mysterious EinSof (infinity) and the worldly, predetermined universe (God’s creation).

While it is not a religious denomination all by itself, it is typically used by some other denominations. Kabbalah’s purpose is to define the nature of all creation and the person, the nature and principle of reality and other ontological questions. It provides approaches to aid in the understanding of these concepts to achieve spiritual consciousness.

It originated from within the realm of the Jewish tradition and practicing Kabbalists typically use Jewish foundations to explain its mysterious wisdoms. The teachings are held by Judaism followers to help define the inner meaning of the Hebrew Bible and Rabbinic writings, and to define the importance of Jewish observances.

Kabbalah emerged in the 12th to 13th centuries, in Southern France and Spain. It became reinterpreted in the Jewish mystical renaissance of 16th century. It was popularized as Hasidic Judaism from the 18th century on upward. The 20th century brought must interest in Kabbalah, inspiring cross-denominational Jewish renewal and backing a wider contemporary spirituality, even in non-Jewish people.

The Kabbalah Centre, in Los Angeles, is a non-profit organization that provides courses on Kabbalistic teachings, both online and through its city-based locations. It was developed by Philip Berg and his wife, Karen. The Centre has a multi-ethnic, international staff of teachers that offer guidance to a global community.

Some have seen The Kabbalah Centre as a distortion of the ancient and mystic traditions, as traditional Kabbalah is thought to be so complex that it can only be taught to devout students older than 40.

The Centre was founded in 1965 and the Los Angeles location was opened in 1984. This organization has over 50 branches worldwide, including large ones in New York City, London and Toronto. The Kabbalah Centre’s method of teaching is starting students with Kabbalah teachings that do not make prior knowledge of Hebrew or Jewish texts necessary.

Adam Goldenberg’s Incredible Journey in Business

By the time Adam was 15 he had started Gamer’s Alliance, a site that advertises online gaming joints.

Intelligent Beauty began as an e-commerce incubator in fashion and later expanded to become a health and beauty market leader with several brands under its portfolio at They also conceptualized on an idea of creating social interaction and linking it with a new shopping experience.

The two businessmen prepared to make major changes to the company to actualize their goals. The changes featured a new platform and well-trained beauty, and fashion consultants and designers. They also decided to make a complete overhaul of the subscription system and come up with a new one that would make it easier to manage their growing customer base.

Foreign Investors Are Coming Back To Brazil


Brazil’s economy has been going through a transition for the last 30 months. Exports have been down, and investors left the country when the country’s credit rating was downgraded. But the recent political changes have sparked renewed interest in Brazil. Foreign investors are coming back to the largest economy in South America. The third quarter of 2016 showed renewed corporate interest. Many foreign corporations have been waiting for the country to bounce back from the impact of China’s economic slowdown.



The new projections for 2017 show an increase in the GDP percentage. Instead of no increase, the economy should grow by almost two percent in 2017, and by more than three percent in 2018. That’s great news for export companies like Eucatex. Eucatex is one of Brazil’s top exporters of building materials. According to CEO, Flavio Maluf, Eucatex has been meeting their sales and profit projections during the economic slowdown, but Maluf expects his export business to increase in 2017.



Eucatex is one of those family-owned Brazilian companies that grew from a one-product wonder into a full line of building supply materials for the domestic as well as for the export market. The Maluf family owned a sawmill in the state of Sao Paulo in the 1950s, and the sawmill cut eucalyptus trees as well as other trees for its customers. Maluf’s grandfather noticed an excessive amount of eucalyptus wood overruns, and he wanted to do something about the wood that was going to waste. Maluf came up with the idea to make ceiling tiles out of the excess eucalyptus wood, and he sold the tiles to some of his friends in the construction business. The ceiling tiles were sturdy, inexpensive, and they looked great, so the demand for the tiles grew faster than anyone expected. writes that Maluf founded Eucatex in the late 1950s, and in the beginning, the company only made eucalyptus wood ceiling tiles for the domestic market.



When Flavio Maluf became president of Eucatex in 1997, the company was exporting ceiling tiles and other products to other countries in South America. Maluf expanded the product line and opened environmentally friendly offices in several cities around the world. Today, Eucatex is a leader in the clean air movement and a leader in the building supply industry.   Be sure to follow Flavio personally on his Facebook page, and check out his advice on Segs.

DEVCO Has Issues With Hotel Built in 2007

Just a month ago, the Middlesex County Improvement Authority was not able to pay a $1 million principal payment on a $20 million total it got from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. Over the course of five years, The Improvement Authority has totaled $7 million in payments that it missed. The loan was used to develop a new hotel and conference center combo called The Heldrich, located in New Brunswick in 2005.
The president of the state Senate, Stephen Sweeney, said that the project is a great example of what can happen when public money is funneled into private companies for big construction projects. The Atlantic City Development Corp. is a sister company of the New Brunswick Development corp and is using them as a model to emulate. The company will use $200 million to develop a new project in Chelsea.

Attorney Chris Paladino is in charge of both operations and personally arranged the Heldrich’s $20 million loan. The $20 CRDA loan is just a part of a larger $100 million loan that was put together to build The Heldrich. Bonds were included in the loan, and were supposed to be paid back. However, only senior bond holders (representing about $30 million) have been paid back in full, plus about 5% interest. Other bondholders haven’t been paid for years now.

John Palmiere, the CRDA Executive Director, said that the payment had not happened but they knew they would be the last to be paid. Apparently, there are positive effects. For example, the hotel employs 235 union workers and pays $1.2 million in taxes for real estate every year.

The funds for the Gateway project in Chelsea are going to be used to build a dorm and campus extension for Stockton University. Apparently, the sale of the tax credits and revenue from the dorms is going to repay the loan.

Devco is based in New Brunswick. It is a development company. It was founded in the 1970’s.

Devco is planning to further its operations nationally. They have managed over $1.6 billion. Their projects are mainly in New Jersey.
