Kabbala and Philosophy Series
What is Chassidus?
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?" Note: These classes were given at Machon Chana in 2001 using our old recording equipment. We have cleaned them to the degree possible. Easy to Intermediate Level.
