Excommunication: Struggle Between Hasidim and Their Opponents   $5.00

Although the descendants of the Lithuanian Torah community of the Gaon, and those of the revolutionary, ecstatic, and spiritual community of the Mezricher Magid live today side by side in close contact, each drawing from the other, originally, however, when these two communities came in close contact, there erupted a conflagration that almost destroyed the nascent Hasidic movement and inevitably changed its course. This lecture is divided into two parts: First, a description of the issues that originally divided the Hasidim from their opponents, the Misnagdim, and second, a history of the bitter initial opposition to the Hasidic movement and its aftermath.
