Rebbes and Chassidim: What They Said - What They Meant

  • Rebbes and Chassidim: What They Said - What They Meant

Product Description

    The only one you can deceive forever is yourself. But what kind of victory is it to deceive a fool?” “When there were no roads, you had to stop traveling at night -- so you had time to think, pray, and converse. Nowadays you can travel day and night; there is no peace!”

The world of the Chassidim is full of such pithy, often mysterious, expressions that can be the topic of a long essay. There are no long essays here -- only short, but fascinating observations, based on the comments of “mystics” who were incredibly down to earth and right on target.

Spirituality and Chassidism are “in” these days, but you need someone who understands their world and their terminology. Someone who can navigate their sayings and apply them to our life.

That “someone” is Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski M.D. -- and in this book we have the good fortune to enjoy him as he combines both worlds.

He is a master thinker, writer, and communicator. He has proven it in thirty books (so far) -- and in this one he is at the height of his powers.

Abraham J. Twerski M.D. is a psychiatrist and ordained rabbi. He is the founder of the Gateway Rehabilitation Center in Pittsburgh, a leading center for addiction treatment, and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. A prolific author on a variety of topics, Dr. Twerski has written four books in collaboration with the late Charles Schultz, creator of Peanuts.
