Jewish History Uncensored

Jan 7, 2021

In this episode we take a closer look at the statement that the Brody Cherem of 1772 was a product of the involvement of the Maskilim. We re-examine the statement that Yisroel of Zamosz was a Maskil. We also take a close look at the Beis Din’s scribe, R Aryeh Leib ben Mordechai. Is there any evidence that he was a Maskil, is there any evidence that he wasn’t a Maskil? We also examine some of the key details of the Cherem. What specific accusations were being made?

We also look at the part the Besht played in correcting the problems that were created by the followers of Shabtai Tzvi.
