Jewish History Uncensored

Sep 24, 2020

In this episode we start looking at the Besht’s thought. First we look at what is said in the academic world about the Besht’s thought and why the Vilna Gaon argues with him. We go on to examine the Besht’s ideas in the greater framework of how the classics understood the issue of Divine Providence, Hashgacha Pratit. 

   Other topics discussed are did Shabtai Tzvi’s apostasy have anything to do with not going to the mikva before learning Zohar? Is the thought of the Ari, Besht, and Tanya synonymous?
