Overview

The Language of Truth: The Torah Commentary of the Sefat Emet by Judah A. Alter

The Hasidic teacher known as the "Sefat Emet," literally "the language of truth," was one of the last great masters of Polish Hasidism. Known to be a mystic but not a kabbalist, the Sefat Emet left behind a rich legacy of insight and theology upon his death in 1905.

The Sefat Emet achieved wide popularity both within and without Hasidic circles. In a community openly hostile toward non-Orthodox Jewry, the Sefat Emet embraced the nontraditionalists.

Professor Arthur Green, one of the leading scholars on Hasidism and modern Jewish theology, has brought together a wide selection of the Sefat Emet's teachings, along with Green's own commentary, and in so doing has achieved a remarkable work of Jewish scholarship. The Language of Truth brings the teachings of the Sefat Emet to a wide audience of both traditional and nontraditional Jews.
