Truth Springs from the Earth
The Teachings of Rabbi Menahem Mendel of Kotsk
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
“Faierstein provides a compelling and illuminating introduction to the life and works of Menahem Mendel of Kotsk—a widely quoted (more often misquoted) Hasidic master—and a scholarly compilation of sayings attributed to the Kotsker Rebbe. This vibrant evocation of a seminal, complex, fascinating, and challenging figure is an admirable and valuable contribution to the history of Hasidism.
—Stephen D. Benin, Founding Director of the Judaic Studies Program, University of Memphis
“This accessible new volume presents a collection of teachings and epigrams attributed to one of the most interesting, vibrant, and enigmatic Hasidic thinkers of the nineteenth century.”
