Core Texts of the Hasidic Masters, Part 13 of 43. Lecture 5, Part B. In this continuation of class five, Schachter-Shalomi talks about Pinhas of Koretz' teaching "The Song of Songs is not Understandable." (He misspeaks and calls it a teaching of Moshe Leib of Sassov here.) Afterward, he answers questions on Jewish and Kabbalistic concepts (especially around evil and "The Breaking of the Vessels."). He then begins to discuss Reb Elimelekh of Lizhensk and the imaginal sacrifice recommended by Reb Elimelekh in "The Small Tzettle." He then sings a niggun to end the class. A course in the Department of Religious Studies at the Naropa Institute, Spring, 1998. See JRRZ0001S0056N0001 - N0043
