Description: Includes both volumes one and two of Buber's classic work, with a foreword by Chaim Potok. Buber devoted forty years of his life to collecting and retelling the legends of Hasidism. These marvelous tales terse, vigorous, often cryptic are the true texts of Hasidism. The Hasidic masters, of whom these tales are told, are full bodied personalities, yet their lives seem almost symbolic. Through them is expressed the intensity and holy joy whereby G-d becomes visible in everything.
