Chasidut

This series of classes on Chassidut, takes us on a journey through various essays and Chassidic discourses by a range of Chassidic Masters, such as the Shem Mishmuel, the Nesivos Shalom, the Ba’ale HaTanya, the Rebbe Rashab, and others. Chassidut explains that this world is characterized by a confrontation between physicality and spirituality. The fundamental purpose of humanity is to discover the ‘holy sparks’ of the Divine in the physical reality. This series explores the deep spiritual and esoteric teachings of the great Chassidic giants, revealing both philosophical concepts and practical insight on the Parsha, the Jewish holidays, the unity of the Jewish people, and the unique beauty inherent in a Jewish marriage.
