The Besht died 250 years ago


The Baal Shem Tov (Besht) passed away 250 years ago.

Doctor Etti Liebes who is the director of the "Olam Gershom Sholem" at the Jewish National Library", presents a special "Besht Exhibition" starting next week.

Further details in Hebrew HERE !

The exhibition will be open from 28 June - 1 October 2010.
The entrance is free of charge !

Among many other things, you can see Rabbi Nachman of Breslov's chair (I am not sure if it is the original one or a copy) as well as a letter Rabbi Nachman wrote to his daughter about three months before he died (see below).

Once the exhibition has started, I will keep you up - to - date and, be'Ezrat HaShem, present more pictures !
