KabU’s mission is to provide universal access to the science of connection. Our global community is growing every day and we strive to welcome people to an environment of development & proper transferal of the wisdom to our learners as well as freedom of discussion, ideas, speech & opinion. We also want to make sure that all of our learners & instructors feel safe and comfortable while in our environment. We have drafted these guidelines to ensure that people understand and follow the rules when participating in our online community and otherwise using our services.
Although we do not routinely screen or monitor content provided by users, we may remove or edit inappropriate content or activity reported to us or suspend, disable, or terminate a user’s access to all or part of the Services. This is done in order to ensure that the KabU environment is free from abusive or destructive content not conducive to the learning setting we are striving to create.
Please keep the following in mind:
- We may take action at any time if something violates the Community Standards outlined here.
- We may ask KabU users to desist in posting content that contains cruel and insensitive content, even if that content does not directly violate our policies.
- Our review team will notify the KabU user after either receiving a complaint that has proven to fall in violation of our terms or discovering the violating content themselves that appears on a thread or discussion post.
- The consequences for violating our Community Standards vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person’s history on KabU. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation, but if we continue to see further violations we may restrict a person’s ability to post on KabU or ban the person indefinitely.
Not all disagreeable or disturbing content violates our Community Standards. For this reason, we have provided categories of types of violating content.
1. Hate Speech
KabU prohibits and removes hate speech, which includes content that directly attacks people based on their:
- National origin
- Religious affiliation
- Sexual orientation
- Sex, gender, or gender identity
- Disabilities or diseases
- Or any other basis of hate speech
People that are dedicated to promoting hatred against these protected or other groups are not allowed a presence on KabU.
KabU removes slanderous speech, which includes a misrepresentation of individuals, institutions, or organizations that have intentional or unintentional ability of causing harm.
Slander is determined by the action of making a false statement which is not rooted in fact and is damaging to a person’s or an organization’s reputation.

- Contains illegal content or promotes illegal activities with the intent to commit such activities.

4. Sharing Materials From External Sources
To respect and foster the advancement of our students, our policy is that students shall be guaranteed to find only authentic Kabbalah materials from authentic Kabbalistic sources on the KabU website and KabU platforms and groups. Authentic sources for use within KabU are primarily those written by Baal HaSulam, Rabash, Dr. Laitman, Rav Kook, and additional Kabbalists and sources mentioned in their writings. KabU considers that the writings of these Kabbalists comprise those most relevant for advancement in our time. This is in accordance with our intention that the KabU environment should be a place where students can access and implement an optimal and streamlined approach to the attainment of the spiritual worlds and the assumption that only those who have already traversed the path that leads from our world across the barrier to the Upper World are fit to define for others what belongs to that path. Therefore, we kindly request that students not post any outside materials, however relevant, useful, or compatible with our approach they might appear. Students are welcome to share media, articles, quotes, etc. that have been posted on one of Bnei Baruch’s channels (Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, the kabbalah.info website, etc.). Materials from Bnei Baruch sites are guaranteed to be authentic and either from or based on the work of true Kabbalists that have attained the spiritual worlds.
Of course, we sincerely respect every student’s freedom to explore and share other approaches when outside the KabU platform.
