Item Description:

The great historic dispute between Chassidus and its opponents is a topic Rabbi Wein has explored in numerous lectures, but in this one, the conflict is the backdrop for the Halachic opinions of these two great men. From the debate over shechita knives to when Shabbos begins and ends, Rabbi Wein shows us not just where these two men stood on the practical issues of Jewish life but where they stand in Jewish history.
