From the Back Cover
'These tales, although they are the kernel of a highly developed form of Jewish mysticism, have a basic human interest that transcends the dividing lines of religion.' -Albert H. Friedlander, Saturday Review

Prof. Wiesel starts with the legendary founder, Rebbe Israel Baal Shem Tov, whose whole existence is cloaked in mystery - and progresses through his students to the 2nd and 3rd generations of rebbes and chassids, including such luminaries as Rebbe Nachman of Breslev and Rebbe Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev.
The author really brings these figures alive with his unique mix of story-telling and teaching - it's a great introduction to the world of early chassidut in 18th-19th century Eastern Europe.
