The most powerful Hasidic teachings made accessiblefrom some of the worlds preeminent authorities on Jewish thought and spirituality.
The teachings of Torah, from beginning to end, are read here as a path toward liberation, a way of uplifting your soul and allowing it to journey homeward, back to its Source in the oneness of all being. Or, even better, to discover that oneness right here, in a loving but transformative embrace of both world and self.
from To the Reader
While Hasidic tales have become widely known to modern audiences, the profound spiritual teachings that stand at the very heart of Hasidism have remained a closed book for all except scholars. This fascinating selectionpresented in two volumes following the weekly Torah reading and the holiday cycle, and featured in English and Hebrewmakes the teachings accessible in an extraordinary way.
Volume 1 covers Genesis, Exodus and Leviticus, and includes a history of early Hasidism and a summary of central religious teachings of the Maggids school. Volume 2 covers Numbers and Deuteronomy and the holiday cycle, and includes brief biographies of the Hasidic figures. Each teaching is presented with a fresh translation and contemporary commentary that builds a bridge between the eighteenth and twenty-first centuries. And each teaching concludes with a dynamic round-table discussion between distinguished Jewish scholar Arthur Green and his closest studentsthe editors of this volume. They highlight the wisdom that is most meaningful for them, thus serving as a contemporary circles reflections on the original mystical circle of master and disciples who created these teachings.
