One of the greatest mashpiim of Chabad Lubavitch, Reb Hillel Paritcher used the vehicle of stories to instill chassidishkite and chassidishe middos in his talmidim.
Reb Hillel would instruct every new talmid to probe the depths of a particular story and then share the lessons he derived from it. Reb Hillel would then tell him the truer and deeper meaning of the story.This taught his students that it is not enough to read a story, one has to learn a story.
His success was evidenced by the fact that his talmidim became the greatest chassidim of the Rebbeim. In the words of the Frierdiker Rebbe, "Even the weakest of his students could bring life to an entire region."
Learn about the chossid whom the Rebbe the Tzemach Tzedek called [only] half a chossid ... because he had refined himself to be half a Rebbe. Allow the power of the stories of his ahavas Yisroel, yiras Shomayim and mesiras nefesh to propel you to a deeper appreciation of how to be a better chossid and how to better serve Hashem.
The inspiration we glean from learning about his life makes this volume a most welcome addition to the Early Chassidic Personalities series.
