Rav Michael Laitman established Bnei Baruch Kabbalah Education & Research Institute in 1991, following the passing of his teacher, Rav Baruch Shalom HaLevi Ashlag (The Rabash), the firstborn son and successor of the greatest Kabbalist of the 20th century, Rabbi Yehuda Leib HaLevi Ashlag. Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag is author of the most authoritative and comprehensive commentary on The Book of Zohar, The Sulam (Ladder) Commentary, the first to reveal the complete method for spiritual ascent. Rav Laitman was Ashlag's prime student, personal assistant, and is recognized as the successor of Rabash's teaching method.
Rav Laitman has dedicated his life to spreading the wisdom of Kabbalah to the world. In his new book, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Kabbalah, Rav Laitman uses rich analogies, examples, and insights to present the most ancient wisdom in simple, easy to understand language. He shows readers how to embrace the ancient teachings and incorporate them into daily life, and offers enlightening insights on:
- The escalating global crisis and issues such as terrorism, climate, health and education
- Freedom of choice -- where we have it and where we don't
- Reality -- how we can expand our perception of the reality we live in and learn to design it
- The story of creation and how to read the Bible and Torah from a Kabbalah point of view.
