Collected in this volume are over one thousand of the most popular and trenchant aphorisms of the past several centuries of hasidic teaching that have captured the heart and soul of world Jewry since the birth of hasidism. Most remarkable about these pithy hasidic sayings is how they combine the wisdom of Jewish tradition with sound modern psychological and spiritual insight.show more

Review quote

Useful for daily meditations or a 'grabber' for entry into a more in-depth spiritual exercise. Put it on a coffee table for easy browsing and reflection, or on the nightstand to be perused before sleep or upon awakening in the morning. -- Rabbi Nathan M. Landman The wisdom of the hasidic tradition distilled into folk proverbs, presented with much warmth and humor. Simcha Raz have given us a great gift. -- Dr. Arthur Green, Brandeis University This remarkable book manages to capture in each and every hasidic aphorism the spiritual audacity, deep humor, and moral wisdom of a great tradition. It has enriched my life. -- Rabbi Harold M. Schulweisshow more
