Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov (1700-1760), the founder of Hasidism, was a mystic and miracle-worker, a lover of God, people, and the whole of creation. He revived Judaism by putting love and joy at the center of religious life and championed the pious common folk against an aloof rabbinic establishment. One of the greatest Jewish teachers of all time, the Besht is the inspiration for much that is vibrant and alive in Judaism today. This is the first comprehensive book in English about his life and teachings. The devotional style of the Introduction, reminiscent of an earlier era, has a charm that testifies to holy inspiration. Drawing on hasidic and scholarly sources, Buxbaum has chosen the best tales, teachings, and parables of the Besht to produce a definitive work that is accessible to everyone, contains much that is new even to the most knowledgeable reader, and is a crown of glory to the Baal Shem Tov.
