Publisher Comments:

Fresh translation and facing-page annotations bring the legendary tales of the impassioned Hasidic rabbis to life. Martin Buber 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. 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 us that the Divine can be found in the everyday. On their own, the allegorical quality of Hasidic tales can at times be perplexing. In Hasidic Tales: Annotated & Explained, they are presented as stories rather than parables, making them accessible and meaningful. The annotations offer insightful yet unobtrusive commentary, explaining theological concepts, introducing major characters, and other clarifying references unfamiliar to most readers. For other titles in the SkyLight Illuminations series, see pp. 18-19.

Synopsis:

The tales of the Hasidic masters can become a companion for your own spiritual journey.
