Product Description

The most powerful Hasidic teachings made accessible - from some of the world's preeminent authorities on Jewish thought and spirituality.

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 selection - presented in two volumes following the weekly Torah reading and the holiday cycle, and featured in English and Hebrew - makes 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 Maggid's 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 students - the editors of this volume. They highlight the wisdom that is most meaningful for them, thus serving as a contemporary circle's reflections on the original mystical circle of master and disciples who created these teachings.

Endorsements

If I could I surely would stand in the place where the disciples of the Maggid stood. This daydream of mine finds its closest fulfillment in this book.... Bring[s] the choicest voices of Hasidic spirituality to the modern reader.
-Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi

A stunning entry point into the heart of Hasidism - a wealth of carefully curated insights that are rich and penetrating, even shattering.... A treasure for any student of Torah.
-Rabbi Sharon Brous

[A selection of] the juiciest, most inspiring insights from the finest Hasidic sources. These teachings will surprise and delight you, touching your soul.
-Daniel C. Matt

[From] the incomparable teacher of Torah of our time.... Contextualizes and presents ... the richness of insights as well as the spiritual depth and significance the Hasidic tradition holds for modern persons. A delight to be savored and returned to over and over again!
-Rabbi David Ellenson,
Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion

Opens [the world of the Hasidic masters] to those looking for spiritual meaning in Torah and in their lives.
-Rabbi Michael Strassfeld,
Society for the Advancement of Judaism

This is the resource we've been waiting for, a milestone in the accessibility of classical Jewish spirituality. No Shabbos Torah hevra should be without it.
-Lawrence Kushner

Invites the spiritual seeker to feel the excitement of direct encounter with primary Hasidic texts and their capacity to awaken the soul... 'Round Two' discussions serve as templates for the kind of questing and questioning that small groups of seekers might do together, suddenly finding that they, too, are engaged in 'speaking Torah.'
-Nancy Flam,
Institute for Jewish Spirituality

A splendid compilation - expertly presented to foster hearing, insight, and spiritual sharing.
-Michael Fishbane,
University of Chicago

Reminds us that Jewish masters read the Torah to discover the spiritual depths just beneath the surface. Every Shabbat and every holiday will be enriched when you study the Torah portion with this extraordinary collection of text and commentary.
-Rabbi Jeremy Kalmanofsky,
Congregation Ansche Chesed, New York City
