A story has little purpose if it cannot be applied to modern times. "Imagining Holiness: Classic Hasidic Tales in Modern Times" is an analysis of classical Hasidic tales of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and how they still hold relevance roughly one hundred years later for Hasidism. By studying the literature of this sect, readers will gain a greater understanding of Hasidic culture through their works. Discussing the common themes in the works, their origins, and their impact on society, "Imagining Holiness' is a must for anyone who wants to better understand these classical works.
