Aish HaTorah is an international network of Jewish educational centers, where Jews from all backgrounds can explore their heritage in an open, non-judgmental atmosphere. Aish HaTorah operates programs in over 100 cities on 5 continents. Our World Center is located in Jerusalem, directly opposite the Western Wall.

Our goal is to re-ignite Jewish pride by teaching Jews about their heritage and its contribution to humanity. Aish's educational programs are based on the following principles:

  • Torah teaches us how to maximize our pleasure and potential in life.
  • Jewish belief needs to be built upon a rational foundation, not a leap of faith.
  • Judaism is a journey where every step counts. It's not all-or-nothing.

Derech Hashem is what its about.

This life has enormous value but the world to come is what it is all about.
