Overview

Rebbe Zusha of Hanipoli was once walking down the street when he was asked by a Russian police officer, "Where are you going?"

Where are you going? That's a good question for any day of the year, but it's especially pertinent during the time period in the Jewish religion known as the Days of Awe - Rosh Hashanah, the Ten Days of Repentance, and Yom Kippur - which are days uniquely designed for taking an inner journey to discover the path to a fulfilling and meaningful life.

In this short volume of eight classic Jewish tales retold by Libi Astaire, this spiritual journey is explored through the lens of Chassidus - the mystical religious movement founded by Rabbi Israel, the Baal Shem Tov. Along the way we'll meet great chassidic leaders such as Rebbe Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev, Rebbe Zusha of Hanipoli, and the Baal Shem Tov himself, who were all masters at showing the way to a New Year filled with good health, prosperity, happiness and, of course, life.
