About The Ashlag Heritage Foundation
The Ashlag Heritage Foundation is the organization behind the creation of this unique database. Or HaSulam was founded as an answer to the need to reach a comprehensive understanding of the Kabbalah and especially the teachings of The Ari-Rabbi Yitzchak Luria and Rabbi Ashlag.
Dedicated to disseminating genuine Kabbalah to all interested parties, regardless of their background, the Or HaSulam study platform presents a unique pathway into the depths of Kabalistic knowledge. The hyperlinked encyclopedia of kabalistic concepts as well as the glossary and dictionary of kabalistic definitions allows the student to reach a fuller understanding of seemingly abstract ideas. The array of tools included in Or HaSulam help rabbis, academics, researchers and motivated students in accessing the depths of Kabbalah, thus enhancing their kabalistic knowledge and research resources.
Designed to fit institutional needs - The database allows accessibility to universities and academic institutes, including student’s use off campus. The project was developed with CDI System’s online publishing platform. For further information, please contact us.
