Rabbi Immanuel Schochet (1935–2013) wrote and lectured extensively on the history and philosophy of Chassidism and topical themes of Jewish thought and ethics. He was a renowned authority on Jewish philosophy and mysticism. He was rabbi of Cong. Beth Joseph, and professor of Philosophy at Humber College, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

When Rabbi Immanuel Schochet became engaged to be married, he decided to drop college to pursue a business opportunity. “If there is no livelihood, there is no Torah,” he reasoned. The Rebbe had a different plan. (1960's)

The Baal Shem Tov remains a unique personality in Jewish history. His teachings touched the entire Jewish nation, scholarly and unlearned alike.
