Hasidism on the Margin

Reconciliation, Antinomianism, and Messianism

Description

Shaul Magid explores one of the most provocative and radical traditions of Hasidic thought, the school of Izbica and Radzin, that Rabbi Gershon Henokh founded in 19th-century Poland. He puts the Hasidism of Izbica-Radzin in context and provides a model for inquiry into other forms of Hasidism.
