Elisheva Balas

Master Teacher for "The Kabbalah Centre"

Elisheva Balas always knew that her life would revolve around helping others, but she didn’t know how until she found the Kabbalah Centre.

A Los Angeles native with a degree in Judaic Studies from UCLA, Elisheva became a student of Kabbalah in her early teens. She was drawn to the fact that the principles of Kabbalah apply to people of all faiths and religions, regardless of ethnicity or place of origin. To her, the beauty of studying Kabbalah is that no one can be forced to think in a particular way; that the teachings are shared in the hopes that they will be applied to one’s life for the sake of bettering it.

Elisheva has been teaching Kabbalah for nearly 20 years in 15 different cities across the world, including London, Rome, Chicago, Seattle, and Miami, just to name a few. She is loved for bringing humor to her classes and lectures. Believing that we should be able to laugh at our negativity, she emphasizes that laughing helps to internalize the painful reality where the ego puts us.
