Aish.com's impact has been far and wide. A recent survey found that 86% of readers said that Aish.com has inspired them to do more Torah learning, and 75% said that Aish.com has led them to increased affiliation with Jewish organizations or increased attendance at synagogue.

Headquartered in Jerusalem near the Western Wall, Aish.com is a division of Aish HaTorah, an apolitical network of Jewish educational centers in 35 branches on five continents. This partnership enables Aish.com users to experience the richness of community at an Aish branch.

The name Aish HaTorah literally means "Fire of Torah." As Elie Wiesel said: "Aish HaTorah means to me the passion of teaching, the passion of learning. The study of Torah, the source of Jewish values, is the way to Jewish survival."

Aish's educational philosophy is that Judaism is not all or nothing; it is a journey where every step counts, to be pursued according to one's own pace and interest. Mitzvot (commandments) are not rituals, but opportunities for personal growth, to be studied and understood. We learn the Torah's wisdom to enrich our own lives, and to share these ideas with all humanity.

As a non-profit organization, Aish.com relies solely on private support to continue providing its wide range of quality content.

Aish.com is the lifeline for hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, seeking Jewish answers to life's most perplexing issues.
