Jewish History Uncensored

Jul 22, 2021

In this episode we take a closer look at the Vilna Gaon’s personal letter against Beshtian Chassidus. What exactly was the Vilna Gaon accusing the Chassidim of? How do we understand the Vilna Gaon’s accusation that the Chassidim were, ‘revealing an explanation in Torah against Halacha’? Does this have anything to do with the changes made to prayer? 

  We also start looking at the letter the Baal Tanya wrote as a response to the Vilna Gaon’s letter. What can we learn about the core of the conflict from the Baal Tanya’s letter?
