Experiencing the Ba’al Shem Tov

Life, Stories, and Teachings

The Ba’al Shem Tov was the founder of Chassidut, the movement that renewed Jewish spirituality in the 18th century. He is considered one of the greatest spiritual leaders and one of the greatest mystics in Jewish history.

Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh will be conducting a four day seminar in Mezhibuzh, the town that served as the Ba’al Shem Tov’s spiritual center during his lifetime and the site of his grave.

Rabbi Ginsburgh is considered the world’s foremost expositor of the teachings of the Ba’al Shem Tov.
