Jewish mysticism has long fascinated and intrigued scholars and truth-seekers of every kind. Kabbalah, the esoteric wisdom of Judaism, and chasidism, its more accessible modern counterpart, have been the sublect of endless study and research. An authentic and scholarly English text that draws upon the full spectrum of traditional Jewish sources is a most valuable addition to this study. In this three-volume series, Rabbi Schochet, presents a sweeping survey of the major themes and concepts found in kabbalah and chasidism, and show how the exoteric and esoteric aspects of Torah complement each other in a manner analogous to body and soul of one entity.
Volume Three: Chassidic Dimensions - Certain ideas and concepts - like that of universal Ahavat Yisroel, brotherly love, the figure of the Rebbe-Tzaddik, and the idea of a "joyful disposition," are so strongly identified with chasidic thought that many do not realize that they derive wholly from Talmud, Midrash and other classic traditions.
