Adon Hashalom (Lord of Peace) is the first fruit of a new, Hebrew-language publishing house named Idra, whose goal is to disseminate to the Israeli public important works of Jewish philosophy, mysticism, and spirituality, as well as esoteric texts from world religions and cultures, which have significantly influenced the unfolding of human consciousness.
Idra is an Aramaic word whose literal meaning is “threshing floor.” In the Zohar, it represents the meeting place of the mystical fraternity headed by Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Idra Press will serve as a modern-day meeting place in which mystical writings from various traditions can assemble together to shed greater light on the deepest of human experiences.
