Learming the work of Rabbi Ashlag at the community of Eshchar in the Galilee


by yedidah

Nehora School is an on-line resource center for the studying and application of the work of Rabbi Yehudah Lev Ashlag z’l and that of his son Rabbi Baruch Shalom Halevi Ashlag z’l. Yedidah facilitates small groups learning the work of Rabbi Ashlag over the Internet, and small groups have now spun off  with people studying together in twos and thees, gradually learning and working together.

The Nehora School grew organically from informal classes that Yedidah Cohen gave in her home following the publication of “In the Shadow of the Ladder: the Introductions to the Kabbalah by Rabbi Yehudah  Lev Ashlag”.  To publish this book Yedidah and her late husband Mark z’l started a small publishing company Nehora Press, and following its publication it was clear that there was a demand for authentic accurate translations of Rabbi Ashlag’s work in the English Language.

Further publications followed, in particular: “A Tapestry for the Soul: the Introduction to the Zohar  by Rabbi Yehudah Lev Ashlag explained using excerpts from his other writings”

Yedidah CohenYedidah started to add audio talks to her work in which she takes a topic of the a text form the Zohar or Rabbi Ashlag’s writings and based on his writing provides a ten minute talk on a pertinent subject. Broadly speaking the subjects of the talks are :

  • the inner meaning of the festivals
  • the application of the Kabbalah in our daily life
  • learning the Kabbalah

As a matter of fact, Yedidah’s work and Nehora School are only Kosher resources of Rabbi Yehudah Ashlag ZATZA”L teaching published today in English which available to all who are interested in it and apparently it is immense importance. Amazing job, thank you very much Yedidah!

I am interested in knowing where you got the photograph of the man in a kittle benching his son before Yom Kippur. Did you take the photograph yourself? If not, what is the source? Thank you.
