The Birth of East European Hasidism || 2
Who Was Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer, the Ba‘al Shem Tov (the “Besht”)?

Moshe Idel, Professor Emeritus at the Hebrew University and Senior Researcher at the Shalom Hartman Institute 


Scant reliable testimonies of his early years and the religious evolution and fame that transformed the Jewish world are a subject of great interest. As part of the series, the Besht’s activity as a magician will also be explored within the backdrop of magic and Kabbalah.
