The Baal Shem Tov's conception of Hashgacha Pratis

 Email

Throughout the generations, the Sages of Judaism have endeavored to comprehend and explain the workings of the cosmic patterns of Hashgacha Pratis. Commonly translated as "Divine Providence," this describes the way in which every entity and action in this world is guided to its ultimate purpose by G‑d's wisdom and choice.

With the revelation of the teachings of Chassidut by the Baal Shem Tov, unique insights penetrated many areas of Jewish thought. Particularly, with regard to Hashgacha Pratis, the Baal Shem Tov's approach enriched our understanding of these Divine patterns of causation and destiny.

This book presents several analytical treatises of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, which clarify the Baal Shem Tov's conception of this subject.
