About the Book

One of the leading scholars of Hasidism and modern Jewish theology has brought together and translated a wide selection of the Torah teachings of the Sefat Emet—one of the last great masters of Polish Hasidism. Green’s personal insightful commentary on the words of the Sefat Emet create a remarkable work of Jewish scholarship, bringing the teaching of this insightful master to a wide audience.


Recommended…for all libraries (congregational, school, or seminary/university) that attempt to reach out to the spiritually inquiring Jewish adult.
