Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov was a teacher of joy, love and profound wisdom who shook the foundations of the established order and founded the chassidic movement in the mid 18th century.
Joy in life
Many people face huge challenges and obstacles in life. Sometimes people getting tied down by heavy chains of hardships and depression.
I personally am a companion of someone with a life of such experiences. It was only a while back that he told me about this book "Trembling with Joy". The compilation reveals unbelievable guidance to leading a happy and joyful life. Ever since he has been introduced to the small book he became attached to it like glue. He takes with him every where he goes, to work, to home, on the streets... until he has to be convinced to just leave it behind sometimes.
For years the world has awaited for a source which could project light and guidance through the difficulties in life.
I definitely give great credit to the book "Trembling with Joy", and would suggest it for anyone with a soul seeking freedom from a world of bitterness and darkness to a world of light and inspiration.
