Eastern European Hasidism—the great mystical revival movement—had a profound impact on Jewish life since its founding in the late 18th-century. Hasidic masters developed the maiseh (Yiddish)—the tale—as a tool for spiritual and ethical development and created a vast collection of stories designed to stimulate the mind and open the heart, addressing a range of theological and ethical issues. Join us as we explore this rich and varied trove of tales, asking how these literary creations might help us in our ongoing search for meaning and purpose.
