The Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles has announced the death of its founder Rabbi Philip Berg, a Jewish spiritual leader whose followers included many A-list stars, notably the singer Madonna.

He was eighty-six.

The rabbi, known as Rav to his supporters, had been ill since suffering a stroke in 2004.

He founded the centre in the nineteen-sixties to teach a form of mysticism he described as the world's oldest body of spiritual wisdom.

Critics portrayed it as primarily a money-making venture.

Pendiri Pusat Kabbalah meninggal dunia

Ia berusia 86 tahun.

Rabi yang dikenal sebagai Rav oleh pengikutnya, jatuh sakit sejak terserang stroke pada 2004.
