In the latest episode of This Pardes Life, Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield and Rabbi Levi Cooper go LIVE from the new Pardes New York office. They talk about a text that is close to Levi’s heart. “Words I Heard from My Master” are teachings from the Ba’al Shem Tov, which appears as an appendix in the first ever published chassidic work, the Toldot Yaakov Yosef (1780) by Rav Ya‘akov Yosef of Polnoye.
