What is Chassidus? classes

This series is based on a sicha (talk) of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, from Volume 2 of Likutei Sichos. Rabbi Paltiel uses this short sicha to provide the framework for a detailed exploration of the origins of Chassidus, the Jewish world before and after Chassidus, some of the different branches of Chassidic philosophy and much more. Most importantly this series seeks to answer the elusive question, "What is Chassidus?". At this point 22 of 49 classes have been posted. More coming soon. Note: These classes were given at Machon Chana in 2001 using our old recording equipment. We are in the process of cleaning them to the degree possible. Easy to Intermediate Level.
