Father of Chassidus

The Baal Shem Tov's House in Medzhibozh

A number of years ago Miriam Shaw created a flash movie about the life and teachings of the Baal Shem Tov, founder of the Chassidic movement, based on the anthology "The Path of the Baal Shem Tov," compiled and translated by Dovid Sears and published by Jason Aronson (now an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield). The soundtrack is from a powerful rendition of a Chassidic melody by clarinet virtuoso Andy Statman. To view Miriam Shaw's audio-visual presentation of this great Jewish mystic's legacy, click here.
