What is Bnei Baruch?
Bnei Baruch is a diverse movement of many thousands of students worldwide. Each student chooses his or her own path and intensity of the study of Kabbalah, according to one's personal conditions and abilities. In recent years, the group has grown into a movement engaged in voluntary educational projects, presenting genuine Kabbalah sources in the style of contemporary languages. The essence of the message disseminated by Bnei Baruch is unity of the people, unity of nations and love of man.
Kabbalists have been providing daily lessons in this wisdom for centuries, and as the centerpiece of Bnei Baruch's activities, Dr. Michael Laitman gives daily lessons at the Bnei Baruch Kabbalah Education Center in Tel Aviv, Israel between 3:15-6:00AM Israel time. The lessons are simultaneously translated into seven languages: English, Russian, Spanish, German, Italian, French and Turkish. In the near future, broadcasts will be translated into Greek, Polish, and Portuguese, as well. As is true for all activities of Bnei Baruch, the live broadcast is provided free for thousands of students worldwide.
What is the meaning of the name, "Bnei Baruch"
Dr. Michael Laitman established Bnei Baruch in 1991, following the passing of his teacher, Rav Baruch Shalom HaLevi Ashlag (The Rabash). He named his group Bnei Baruch (sons of Baruch) to commemorate the memory of his mentor.
How is Bnei Baruch funded?
Bnei Baruch is a non-profit organization for teaching and sharing the wisdom of Kabbalah. To maintain its independence and purity of intentions, Bnei Baruch is not supported, funded, or otherwise tied to any governmental, political or religious entity. Since the bulk of its activity is provided free of charge, the prime source of funding for the group's activities is tithing, contributed by students on a voluntary basis. Additional sources of income are donations and proceeds from the sale of Dr. Laitman's books which are sold at cost.
