Foundations of the Fourth Turning of Hasidism

Foundations of the Fourth Turning of Hasidism: A Manifesto, touted as Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, z’l, last work, is really a stigmatization of some of his life’s objectives.  Nothing new is said here, it is more like a coda of this rabbi’s work.  So unless you are a big fan of the rabbi's work, this book is probably not worth getting.

Rabbi Zalman has a great deal of work out there, some quite good, some no worth the effort.  Like the old style Chasidic masters, he was far better life and in person that in print.
