Many young people in high school will be preparing for their graduation this year. Graduating from high school is a huge event in the lives of high school seniors. It is one of the biggest accomplishments that they have made up to that point in their lives. However, in many ways, it is only the beginning for many graduating high school seniors. The plan for many seniors graduating from high school is to attend college.
Attending college is a dream that many young people have, and the dream has usually been in their lives for many years. Some of the young people have made plans and thought about the day that they would be able to start college. Although the dream and plans for college are great, the reality for some young people who want to attend college depends on the ability to pay for college. The cost of college is very expensive and some young people do not have the family support to be able to pay for college.
As a result, some graduating high school seniors who want to go to college must find resources to help pay for the cost of attending college. One of the ways that many young people pay for college is by earning scholarships. There are many scholarships available for young people who want to attend college. However, the people who want the scholarships must take the time to locate the scholarships and apply for the scholarships.

For thousands of years, Kabbalah has successfully remained focused on its mission of obtaining the hidden knowledge of God, such as God’s creations for the visible and invisible universe. Until now, Kabbalah is explained as a concealed knowledge or Jewish mysticism. Kabbalah has been presented as ancient wisdom passed down via oral traditional to handpicked individuals starting from Adam to Abraham, and eventually to Moses. Centuries ago, this knowledge was reserved for a select group of married men aged 40 years and above. Precisely, the Jew’s general preference was responsible for limiting the spread of Kabbalah teachings.
Factors that hindered the spread of Kabbalah
Jewish men in their early 20s and late30s could choose to study directly from a qualified Kabbalist. However, personal studies were met with strict restrictions. Accessing written materials such as books and manuscripts proved to a difficult task since they were scarce and expensive. Women, children, and uneducated men were never considered for any formal training irrespective of if the training sessions were taking place next to their homes. The main reason behind the restrictions of Kabbalah dissemination is that it exposed Godly matters that were a bit concealed in Torah. This ancient knowledge focused on the inner characters of God rather than outer perceptions.
The rise of Kabbalah
In the early 13 century, more people started to study Kabbalah and its aspects were introduced into traditional Jewish rituals and beliefs. Between 1500 and 1800, the wisdom became popular among Jewish communities based in the Middle East and Europe. Jerusalem became a promising center for studying Kabbalah in the 1900s and attracted men from all over the world, including Rav Yehuda Ashlag, the brains behind The Kabbalah Center. He was born back in 1885 in Warsaw and brought up by a Chasidic family. He had an opportunity to study the traditional Jewish education. He started learning Kabbalah at a tender age, and the works of Rav Isaac Luria impressed him a lot. Rav Ashlag recruited several students but increasingly focused on sharpening the skills of one of his most talented and committed students, Rav Brandwein. After the demise of Rav Ashlag, Brandwein took up the responsibility of disseminating the Kabbalah wisdom. With the help of his wife (Karen), Brandwein introduced Kabbalah in the U.S. by instituting a Kabbalah Center.
Kabbalah Centre was founded in 1992 by Rav Yehuda Ashlag. Rav was the first master dedicated and strived to make the guarded wisdom accessible. He published detailed information of Kabbalah wisdom to enlighten his student Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein who also handed it down the lineage to Rav Berg, and this is how Kabbalah Centre evolved.
The Kabbalah wisdom was revealed thousands of years ago. The concealed knowledge included the design of the whole universe both seen and unseen. Kabbalah is therefore popularly known as the Jewish Mysticism or secret wisdom. Back then, the knowledge was handed down the line through word of mouth and to only married men who were above 40 years. Generally the Jewish community did not approve of kabbalah’s widespread dissemination.
It was hard for the young generation to access the written materials since the books and the manuscripts were scarce and unaffordable at the time. Nevertheless, some of the Kabbalah believers felt that the secret wisdom should be widely spread and shared even by other believers outside Jewish religion. However, Kabbalah was never taught to women, children or illiterate men due to speculation that they were unfit or could not comprehend the manifold wisdom of Kabbalah.
In the 18th century, the Kabbalists and rabbis made it more complicated to access the information and prohibited unsupervised access to the manuscripts and books. Despite the efforts of print media publishing a lot of copies for distributions, a good number of rabbis and Kabbalists preferred to keep the secret wisdom in handwritten materials to avoid printing errors or misinterpretations. To an extent, some of the teachings were deliberately left in worded codes and cryptic allowing only the informed with the wisdom decipher the hidden contents.
Kabbalah was primarily hidden from public since it contained knowledge about God and was only explicitly revealed in Torah. Kabbalistic is mostly the fundamental aspects of God rather than the outer perception. The book of Zohar is the core document that contains and provides all the details and information about the secret wisdom of Kabbalah.

If you have young children in elementary or middle school, you may be very familiar with this app, but even if you don’t know about it, it could be coming to a school near you. The app is ClassDojo, a simple yet very powerful app that’s becoming popular in schools across the US and the UK, and now 2 in 3 schools have ClassDojo installed into their systems. The app was built to improve communication and positive reinforcement between teachers and students, and create change from the ground up. And no doubt this app has done just that as parents and teachers who’ve used this app are raving about its effectiveness.
But just how does this app work? It’s a free app that can be downloaded right off of Google Play or Apple’s app stores, and teachers and administrators can have it used in their schools immediately, becoming connected to students and their parents with ease. ClassDojo allows teachers to assign tasks to students, keep them on task, and give them feedback when they’re doing the tasks. Students can also snap pictures of their activities and post them on their ClassDojo profile wall, and once the teacher approves, mom and dad can see what their child has done in school and tell them how proud they are when they get home. And for parents, the constant communication the app affords them with the teacher can eliminate parent-teacher meetings, and now parents can play a more active role in helping children do their homework.
But if what you’ve just heard about Class Dojo wasn’t enough, the app has grown in popularity without its founders even spending a penny on marketing. Yes it’s true, the founders Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary have simply spread the knowledge of their app through word of mouth. The reason they have been so successful doing this is because they have taken the time to talk to many different teachers to find out what they would like to see happen to change their classrooms, and in compiling those ideas together, they’ve been able to make ClassDojo into an app that works for its customers, and not the other way around. The app was started in 2011 with an initial offering of $1.6 million in startup capital, but after a series of funding as it grew in popularity, it has recently raised up to $21 million in just this last year. Right now, all features of the app are free, but there are plans in the works to integrate optional premium features.
In as much as Mojo and Katie may bear a resemblance to characters from Pixar’s “Inside Out.”, the two critters can consider themselves stars. They have a show, which is a sequence of lively shorts that are a brainchild of ClassDojo. The aim of the series is to help tutors, leaners and parents to have a better understanding of the “growth mindset”.
The upstart recently released the first in a sequence of five clips that talk about the growth mindset. The series tries to explain the idea that human intelligence and talents are not fixed. Actually, the two attributes can be developed and fortified with time. The remaining four clips will each be accompanied by a dialogue guide meant for parents and tutors. They will be released within one week of each other on video streaming site YouTube and ClassDojo’s website, “Big Ideas”.
The videos were created through a partnership between Project for Educational Research that Scales, (PERTS) and ClassDojo. PERTS is an initiative of Stanford University. This is a group that studies the motivation and resilience of learners. Its executive director, Dave Paunesku expressed his delight with the end result. The group was interested in partnering with ClassDojo due to the strides that it has made as far as grounding up change in learning is concerned.
The idea of growth mindset is not new within the academic circles. Among its most notable protagonists is Carol Dweck, a psychologist at Stanford University. She was widely researched about how parents and guardians can impart “growth mindset” lessons to their children. PERTS’s outreach exertions on the other hand have mostly concentrated on reaching out to more tutors and parents.
