Yehuda Berg is a former co-director of the Kabbalah Centre, which was founded by his father Philip Berg.
Berg is an author. His book, The Power of Kabbalah, became an international best-seller as did another of his books, The 72 Names of God. In February 2009, Berg launched a radio show on Sirius XM's Stars Channel entitled The Life You Create.
In 2014, a former Kabbalah Centre student brought a lawsuit against Berg alleging Sexual assault. She claimed that Berg offered her alcohol and Vicodin then made sexual advances.
In November 2015 a Los Angeles Superior Court jury found that Berg had acted with malice and was liable for intentional infliction of emotional distress and was ordered to pay $135,000, which included a punitive damages component. The Kabbalah Centre itself was also ordered to pay $42,500 for being negligent in its supervision of Berg, who was one of its co-directors at the time of the assault.
In 2007, Berg was named Number 4 in Newsweek's list of America's Top 50 Rabbis.
In 2009, GQ magazine's The Gentlemen's Fund honored him for being an Agent of Change in the field of Education.
