A Tzaddik and His Students The Rebbe-Chassid Relationship
Author: Shloma Majeski
Many Jews are attracted to spirituality but never think to look in their own religion to find it. Still more are unaware that chassidic philosophy and its practice are the "soul" and spiritual core of Judaism.
The starting point of the chassidic way of life is a chassid's connection to his or her Rebbe. But like many of the more spiritual concepts in Judaism, the role and function of a Rebbe - and the chassidic movement in general - has been largely cloaked in mystery, misinterpreted, or simply unknown.
In this book, A Tzaddik and His Students: The Rebbe-Chassid Relationship, Rabbi Shloma Majeski takes the reader on a step-by-step journey into the spiritual world of the Rebbe-chassid relationship, explaining the nature and purpose of a tzaddik/Rebbe, his connection with his chassidim, and the relevance of this phenomenon in the lives of every human being today.
