Book Description

March 1 1991 Essential Papers on Jewish Studies
This book provides a comprehensive view of the history, the beliefs and practices, and the sociology of the Hasidic Movement. Simultaneously it provides a reflection of the development of the scholarly understanding of Hasidism from the 18th century to the present. For the first time, the English reader will have access to Dubnow's presentation of Israel Baal Sheen Tov, founder of Hasidism, Dinur's analysis of the 18th-century sermons and other rabbinic literature which formed the background for the appearance of the movement and Wertheim's flawed but fascinating description of the behaviour of the Hasid. The volume concludes with a synthesis of the sociological literature on contemporary Hasidism. The contributors include Solomon Maimon, Simon Dubnow, Ben Zion Dinur, Murray Jay Rosman, Shmuel Ettinger, Mordecai L. Wilensky, Gershom Scholem, Ada Rapoport-Albert, Louis Jacobs, Aaron Wertheim, Raphael Mahler, Martin Buber, and Stephen Sharot.

Well done but some of the footnote references don't check out...editor may have relied on contributors a bit too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars The mystical love for God. Sept. 2 2013
By ELIANA SOUZA FURTADO - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hasidism gave us the way to the mystical love for God, the love we just have to feel to make our lives worth. We have to make God part of our lives, just living conscious about His presence and knowing for sure that He believes in us, that we are capable to do the best we can to be people in evolution, people that, someday in time, will be the perfect being He wants us to be.
