Light and Fire of the Baal Shem Tov.


The light and fire of the Baal Shem Tov.

Buxbaum, Yitzhak.

Continuum Publishing Group


420 pages




Buxbaum is a maggid, a traditional Jewish inspirational speaker and storyteller. Here he collects stories about Baal Shem Tov (1700-60) that he finds to portray the great and holy figure adequately. They provide not a biography, he says, but a life-in-stories, and the arrangement corresponds to the stages of his life and teachings.
