For hundreds of years, the Kabbalah had been closed to all but a few. It was in the 20th century that Rabbi Yehudah Leib Ashlag opened this spiritual treasure for us all. He became known as Baal HaSulam, “Master of the Ladder,” after the name of his great commentary on the Zohar, the central work of Kabbalah. The study of Kabbalah opens us to a spiritual path that is both Jewish and universal as it connects soul with Source. Rabbi Ashlag taught the importance of uniting inner intention with outward action; and that the revealed Torah needs to join with the hidden Torah, Kabbalah. The Master of the Ladder brings you Rabbi Ashlag’s life, told through his letters, his poems, and through encounters with his students. It is a tale that enables you to experience the depth and beauty of a Torah-inspired life. You, too, can feel the passion that filled Rabbi Ashlag’s heart and soul. Inviting you into the heart of Torah, The Master of the Ladder enables you to discover your own heart.
