Institute for the Study of Hasidism

About the Institute

The late Hasidic period (the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century) was percieved and presented in research as an institutionalized and fixated movement that lost the initial Hasidic renaissance and had even degenerated. In recent research we see change and are introduced to more complex methods and approaches that are finding unique charachteristics in late Hasidism. With that being said, most of these new studies focused on the mid-nineteenth century because, ironically, there are less significant Hasidic materials that are available from the late 19th and early 20th centuries until the Holocaust. The Herzog Institute for the Study of Hasidism was established to fill this gap.
