Kabbalah Center Closure of Children's Charity unrelated to Tax Investigation


The Kabbalah Center, a spiritual organization focusing on ancient Jewish texts said to hold the secrets of the universe, will be closing its children’s charity, Success for Kids (SFK). SFK, a 10 year-old nonprofit organization for children, will shut its program in American schools at the end of the present school term. According to Michal Berg, the SFK President, this is due to larger than expected overhead costs associated with translating the religious organization’s lessons into a nondenominational curriculum.

In a letter to supporters explaining the impending closure, Berg stated, “The reality is that the current public school expansion strategy is not cost-effective and it is difficult to scale the program to impact more children.” However, the letter made no mention of the federal grand jury investigation into Kabbalah Center’s alleged tax evasion.
