Hasidic Thought brings to life the vital essence of Hasidism, a path toward spiritual renewal that leads the individual within themselves to uncover the divine element that lies dormant. Examines the social, historical, ideological, and theological principles of Hasidism, how Hasidism's social philosophy contributed to the expansion of its influence in Eastern European Jewry, and the daily life of Hasidic communities.
