Book Review: The Regal Way: The Life and Time of Rabbi lsrael of Ruzhin

By Edward Feld

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2002

Feld reviews Assaf's The Regal Way: The Life and Time of Rabbi Israel of Ruzhin, calling the author an ideal biographer of his subject, an archetypal Hasidic master who is able to speak to the hearts of his people, understand their humanity, and provide for their needs. Feld calls the book a delightful example of the contribution the academic study of Judaism can make to our understanding both of communal history and spiritual phenomena.
