Shlomo Elyashiv (Eliashoff ) (January 5, 1841 [12 Tevet 5602] - March 13, 1926 [27 Adar, 5676]) (Hebrew: שלמה בן חיים חייקל אלישיב‎), also known as the Leshem or Ba'al HaLeshem, was a famous kabbalist, who lived in Šiauliai, Lithuania.

The primary work for which Elyashiv is known is Leshem Shevo V’Achlama which was written in four parts and released in the following order:

  • Drushei Olam HaTohu (Sefer HaDei'ah) - Elyashiv details what happened, based upon the Zohar, Arizal, and the Vilna Gaon, from the first moment of God’s emanation of light that we are allowed to study, up until physical Creation itself.
  • Hakdamot u’She’arim (HaKadosh) - An introduction to Elyashiv's system, based upon the idea of five major revelations that occur between the Divine and humanity; it also contains a discussion of the Sarugian Lurianic system, particularly of the idea of the "malbush"
  • Sha’arei Leshem Shevo V’Achlama, Sefer HaBeiurim
  • Sha’arei Leshem Shevo V’Achlama, Sefer HaKlallim
