Our Vision

Overall, our long-range vision is to continue to provide a channel for the translation, publication, and dissemination for English speakers of the deep concepts and teachings of the Baal HaLeshem.

G-d willing, as this effort grows and creates a positive influence on those who wish to gain more comprehension of this knowledge, further projects involving other teachings from authentic Kabbalah texts will be announced and implemented in the future.
