Annotated & Explained
Rabbi Rami Shapiro
Martin Buber was the first to bring the Hasidic tales to life in the mid-twentieth century. His groundbreaking work was the first time that most readers had ever encountered the lives and teachings of these great Jewish spiritual masters from Eastern Europe. Annotated and explained by Rabbi Rami Shapiro, this edition offers an insightful commentary that explains these occasionally perplexing, often quite charming, stories and allegories. Rabbi Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi writes about this book:
Like a seasoned Hasid from the emerging future paradigm, Rami tells the stories from the heart. His insightful comments help the contemporary intellect to realize what the soul intuitively knows.
