Item Description...
Overview
Martin Buber, author of Tales of Hasidim, was the first to bring the Hasidic tales to life for modern readers in the middle of the twentieth century. His groundbreaking work was the first time that most readers had ever encountered the lives and teachings of these profound and enigmatic spiritual masters from Eastern Europe. In Hasidic Tales: Annotated & Explained, Rabbi Rami Shapiro breathes new life into these classic stories of people who so marvelously combined the mystical and the ordinary. Each demonstrates the spiritual power of unabashed joy, offers lessons for leading a holy life, and reminds you that the Divine can be found in the everyday. Without an expert guide, the allegorical quality of Hasidic Tales can be perplexing. But Shapiro presents them as stories rather than parables, making them accessible and meaningful. Now you can experience the wisdom of Hasidism firsthand even if you have no previous knowledge of Jewish spirituality. This SkyLight Illuminations edition offers insightful yet unobtrusive commentary that explains theological concepts, introduces major characters, offers clarifying references unfamiliar to most readers, and reveals how you can use the Hasidic tales to further your own spiritual awakening.

Publishers Description

The Tales of the Hasidic Masters Can Become a Companion for Your Own Spiritual Journey.

"The wisdom of the Hasidim is earthy, realistic, rooted in the simplicity of the heart. It is alive with the awareness of the holiness of Creation and the boundlessness of God s mercy, and is utterly honest about the necessity of living such awareness in loving service to all beings. It is a wisdom that fuses the highest mystical initiations with the most down-home celebration of life and a rugged commitment to social and political justice in all its forms. In other words, it is a wisdom that is never, as my old prep school headmaster would put it, "too divine to be of any earthly use." from the Foreword by Andrew Harvey

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Insight into Hasidic Judaism  Sep 21, 2008
This is a collection of stories written by and for Hasidic Jews, which I, a Gentile, read for the purpose of gaining insight into Hasidism. I had found that every Hasidic Jew I had become acquainted with turned out to be very likable, which aroused my curiosity, because I had confused Hasidism with Jewish Fundamentalism, something it most definitely isn't! It is more akin in spirit, I think, to Zen Buddhism, albeit definitely theistic (or panentheistic).

These tales also are reminiscent of the parables of the Jewish prophet of more than a century and a half earlier, Yeshua bar Miriam, better known today by the distorted version of his name (with every component phoneme changed) after it passed from his native Aramaic thru Greek, Latin, and finally into English, where it came out 'Jesus.' Had he been born in the mid-eighteenth century or later, Jesus might well have become a Hasid.

Altho I grew up hearing occasional casual remarks disparaging of Jews, I never got acquainted with any until college, where I discovered that about 40% of the students I found most likable turned out to be from the 5% of the students who were Jewish, an experience which preindisposed me to become bigoted against Jews.

These tales, delightful in themselves, conveyed to me much of the essence of Hasidism. While some of them may have more relevance for you if you're Jewish, you definitely don't have to be Jewish to appreciate and enjoy them, and Rabbi Shapiro's notes are very helpful. Thank you, Rabbi Shapiro.
