About Bnei Baruch

Bnei Baruch is a group of Kabbalists in Israel, sharing the wisdom of Kabbalah with the entire world. Study materials in over 30 languages are based on authentic Kabbalah texts that were passed down from generation to generation.

History and Origin

In 1991, following the passing of his teacher, The Rabash, Michael Laitman established a Kabbalah study group called “Bnei Baruch.” Laitman had been The Rabash’s prime student and personal assistant, and is recognized as the successor of Rabash’s teaching method.

The Rabash was the firstborn son and successor of Baal HaSulam (1884-1954), the greatest Kabbalist of the 20th century. Baal HaSulam authored the most authoritative and comprehensive commentary on The Book of Zohar, titled The Sulam (Ladder) Commentary. He was the first to reveal the complete method for spiritual ascent.

Today, Bnei Baruch bases its entire study method on the path paved by these two great spiritual leaders.

The Study Method

The unique study method developed by Baal HaSulam, and his son, the Rabash, is taught and applied on a daily basis by Bnei Baruch. This method relies on authentic Kabbalah sources such as The Book of Zohar, by Rabbi Shimon Bar-Yochai, The Tree of Life, by the Ari, and The Study of the Ten Sefirot, by Baal HaSulam.

While the study relies on authentic Kabbalah sources, it is carried out in simple language and uses a scientific, contemporary approach. Developing this approach has made Bnei Baruch an internationally respected organization, both in Israel and in the world at large.

The unique joining of an academic study method and personal experiences broadens the students’ perspective and awards them a new perception of the reality they live in. Those on the spiritual path are given the necessary tools to study themselves and their surrounding reality.

The Message

Bnei Baruch is a diverse movement of hundreds of thousands of students worldwide. The essence of the message disseminated by Bnei Baruch is universal: unity of the people, unity of nations and love of man.

For millennia, Kabbalists have been teaching that love of man should be the foundation of all human relations. This love prevailed in the days of Abraham and the group of Kabbalists that he established. If we make room for these seasoned, yet contemporary values, we will discover that we possess the power to put differences aside and unite.

The wisdom of Kabbalah, hidden for millennia, has been waiting for the time when we would be sufficiently developed and ready to implement its message. Now, it is emerging as a solution that can unite diverse factions everywhere, enabling us, as individuals and as a society, to meet today’s challenges.


Bnei Baruch was established on the premise that “only by expansion of the wisdom of Kabbalah to the public can the world be saved from extinction” (Baal HaSulam). Hence, Bnei Baruch offers a variety of ways for people to explore nature and their lives, providing careful guidance for beginners and advanced students alike.


Bnei Baruch established a production company, ARI Films ( specializing in production of educational TV programs throughout the world, and in many languages.

Since the bulk of its activity is provided free of charge, the prime sources of funding for the group’s activities are donations and tithing—contributed by students on a voluntary basis—and Laitman’s books, which are sold at cost.
