Welcome To The Orisha Online Altar

Here you can learn about West African and diaspora Vodun and other related systems of belief and practice. Vodun is one of the first, if not the first of the world's spiritual belief systems. It has an unbroken line of priesthood in many areas of West Africa dating back to over 10,000 years.

Orisha Online Altar is the devotional and educational project of a group of African spirituality adherents based in northern Israel.

Ebbo at the Kineret in 2013We are Ile Baalat Teva, and practice our own unique type of Vodun that incorporates Canaanite, Kemetic, Hellenic, and other local systems, while respecting individuals’ Ancestors.  We defer only to the African priesthoods.  There are many flavors of Vodun in Africa and the diaspora.
