Emerging from the eighteenth-century remote villages of the Ukraine and Poland, the teachings of the Baal Shem Tov and his students have recently experienced an unprecedented revival within the Jewish world, touching the souls of thousands of Jews seeking a deeper and more meaningful relationship with our Father in Heaven. For years, many of these teachings have remained inaccessible to the English speaker. Until now.
From Behind the Curtain takes us on an incredible journey through the beautiful world of Chassidic thought—extracting practical guidance from the writings of the tzaddikim and demonstrating their relevance to the twenty-first-century Jew—enabling us to develop a more meaningful and passionate connection to the Master of the world, and opening our eyes to Hashem’s loving hand, guiding us every step of the way.
