Chasidim, Mitnagdim and Enlightenment: The Jews in Exile

This class covers the growth of the Chasidic movement as well as those who opposed it (the Mitnagdim). At the end of the class, we discuss the beginnings of the Haskalah or "Enlightenment" which drew many Jews away from observance.

Great classes. Some pointers, Id like a little more historical details, and for the crowd in the back not to have so much ad lib. Really enjoy these classes on the way to and back from work. Reply
