A tradition handed down from Rebbe to Rebbe: During the well-known conflict (between chassidim and their opponents) the chassidim told the Alter Rebbe about the terrible abuse they suffered from the plain misnagdic1 folk. The Rebbe said: Grandfather (as he called the Baal Shem Tov)2 deeply loved simple folk. In my first days in Mezritch, the Rebbe, (the Maggid) said: "It was a frequent customary remark of the Rebbe (Baal Shem Tov) that love of Israel is love of G‑d. "You are children of Hashem your G‑d"3; when one loves the father one loves the children.
