In Pursuit of Perfection
May - July 2014
From the LSJS website:
Spies, Korach, Zimri – this book is full of rebellion. Or maybe it’s the story of a community on the cusp of perfection but haunted by self perception clashing with reality. We will explore themes of leadership and the dangers of self-denial through the lens of the chassidic School of Przysucha – the Rebbes of Ishbitz, Kotzk, Lublin and Sochaczew.
