His father, Cesare, worked for the manufacturing firm Ganz and spent much of his time working abroad in Hungary, where Ganz was based. Cesare was an avid reader and autodidact. Levi's mother, Ester, known to everyone as Rina, was well educated, having attended the Istituto Maria Letizia. She too was an avid reader, played the piano, and spoke fluent French.
As founder of what is possibly the single most important religious movement in Jewish history, Chassidusmany legends have grown around him and it is difficult for us to know what is historical fact. Even the year of his birth is a matter of controversy, some sources say it was His parents, Eliezer and Sarah, were quite old when he was born and they passed away when he was a still a very young child.
Many legends are told about Eliezer, the father of The holocaust essay by bruno bettelheim Baal Shem Tov. We are told that his last words to his son were "Fear nothing other than God.
Nevertheless, he was different from most children. He would wander in the fields and forests surrounding his home and seclude himself, pouring out his heart to God. Young Yisrael had an unusually strong emotional relationship with God. This relationship was perhaps the defining characteristic of the religious approach he would ultimately develop and which came to be known as Chassidus.
When he entered his teens the community's responsibility to support him ended and he was given a job as a teacher's assistant bahelfer. One of his tasks was to escort the children to and from school, a task which he performed in his own unique way, leading the children in song and praise to God.
His next job was as a caretaker in the local synagogue. This provided the young Yisrael with the opportunity to study and develop. During this period he attained an outstanding level of knowledge in the entire body of Jewish knowledge, including eventually, the mysteries of Kabbalah.
Nevertheless, he publicly he maintained an image of simplicity, and the townspeople were completely ignorant of his stature. According to legend, during this period Yisrael developed a relationship with other hidden tzadikim righteous men.
He also apparently married during this period, but his wife passed away. At some point after the death of his first wife he moved to a town near Brody where he was hired as a teacher for young children.
He became acquainted with Rabbi Ephraim of Brody, who somehow discovered that Yisrael was not the simple fellow he appeared to be. He was so impressed with Yisrael that he offered his daughter, Leah Rochel, to Yisrael for a wife.
However, Rabbi Ephraim passed away a short time later, so when Yisrael went to Brody to marry his wife, he met the bride's brother, Rabbi Gershon Kitover, also a major scholar. When Yisrael presented himself as the groom, Rabbi Gershon was shocked, since Yisrael was dressed in the manner of an ignorant peasant.
However, Yisrael produced a letter of engagement and Rabbi Gershon begrudgingly agreed. Leah Rochel however, was apparently more perceptive and saw that there was more to Yisrael than appeared on the surface.
After their marriage, Rabbi Yisrael and his wife moved to a small town in the Carpathian Mountains. Supported by his wife, he spent this period in study and worship.
Finally, when he was thirty-six years old in the yearRabbi Yisrael revealed himself to the world. He settled in Talust and rapidly gained a reputation as a holy man. The title Baal Shem Master of the Name was used for holy men who were known as miracle workers since they used the power of the Name of God to work miracles.
He was also known by the acronym of "Besht. Rabbi Yisrael's fame spread rapidly. Many important scholars became his disciples. It was during this period that the movement, which would eventually be known as Chassidus pietybegan.
The Baal Shem Tov's teachings were largely based upon the Kabalistic teachings of the AriZal Rabbi Yitzchak Luria but his approach made the benefits of these teachings accessible even to the simplest Jew. He emphasized the profound importance and significance of prayer, love of God, and love of one's fellow Jews.A Critique of “Cinderella” A Story of Sibling Rivalry and Oedipal Conflicts By Bruno Bettelheim Bruno Bettelheim is a Freudian Psychologist.
