The name Moshe (Moses) comes from the Hebrew word Moshech (pulling), as in pulling out of this world. Moses was different than other Kabbalists in that alongside his revelations, he was ordered to publicize them in writing and establish learning centers.

Moses had 70 disciples, and Yehoshua Ben Nun (Joshua, the son of Nun) was the one who succeeded him. Moses did more than research the Upper World. He dealt with the practical realization of his spiritual attainment in our world, such as the exodus from Egypt. With the wisdom he acquired and the Upper Forces he received from Above, he brought the people of Israel out of exile.

His next task was to write a book with which any person could “conquer” the Upper World. With this book, they could exit Egypt in the spirit and stop worshiping idols, the sun, and other false gods. It would grant them entrance to the spiritual Israel — Atzilut, a world of eternity and wholeness.

Moses created a method in his book, The Torah (Pentateuch), from the word Ohr (Light). It contains instructions on how to use the Light as a means to advance in the spiritual world. All people can uncover the entire picture of creation; they can reach the desired outcome and achieve the final goal if they only read and understand the instructions correctly. Moses’ method from The Torah, adapted to today’s souls, allows anyone to attain Moses’ degree of spirituality.
