The Writings of the Last Generation & The Nation
On June 5, 1940, Rav Yehuda Ashlag, known as Baal HaSulam (author of the Ladder) for his Sulam (ladder) commentary on The Book of Zohar, published the first copy of the paper, The Nation. In it, he tried to offer a lasting solution to the causes of the Holocaust, and to unite the people of Israel, for he perceived its fragmentation as its prime impediment to happiness. His efforts, however, were thwarted by Jews who opposed his views, and that first issue became the only issue ever to be printed.
After World War II, Baal HaSulam wrote extensively about the causes for the war, and the solutions to anti-Semitism as he perceived them. He never published these writings. We have collected them and published them in The Writings of the Last Generation.
Completing the Circle
Completing the Circle: an empirically proven method for finding peace and harmony in life, presents precisely that. Over a period of four years, the Connection-Circle and Round-Table discussion formats have proven themselves as successful methods for resolving seemingly unsolvable conflicts, reassembling shattered relationships, and bringing together alienated families. These discussions have been taking place in the US, Europe, and Israel, all with resounding success.
A Sage’s Fruit vol.2 - Essays of Baal HaSulam
For over sixty years, some of the most powerful essays written by Rav Yehuda Ashlag, known as Baal HaSulam (Owner of the Ladder) for his Sulam (Ladder) commentary on The Book of Zohar, have been sealed and concealed. In some, the text has become indiscernible and the letters barely readable. In some, the text has been torn and some was lost. For this reason, ellipses are quite common, either because the original text is incomplete, or because it cannot be read with certainty.
