Living in the first part of the eighteenth century in Podolia and Wolhynia, the Baal-Shem braved scorn and rejection from the rabbinical establishment and attracted followers from among the common people, the poor, and the mystically inclined. Here Buber offers a sensitive and intuitive account of Hasidism, followed by twenty stories about the life of the Baal-Shem. This book is the earliest and one of the most delightful of Bubers seven volumes on Hasidism and can be read not only as a collection of myth but as a key to understanding the central theme of Bubers thought: the I-Thou, or dialogical, relationship.
