History and Origin

Michael Laitman established Bnei Baruch in 1991, following the passing of his teacher, Rav Baruch Shalom HaLevi Ashlag (The Rabash).

The name Bnei Baruch (sons of Baruch) commemorates the memory of Baruch Ashlag (The Rabash), Michael Laitman’s teacher and mentor, whose side he never left in the final 12 years of his life, from 1979 to 1991.
