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.
