Review: Somewhere A Master

Somewhere A Master
Somewhere A Master by Elie Wiesel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a fascinating collection of stories of the Hasidic sages, concerning their friendships, disciples, and rivalries, and the lessons they have to teach all of us even today. Somewhere A Master touched me deeply in its discussion of the Hasid’s need to counter the tragedy and sadness in the world with love and light and devotion. These learned men were the leaders of their communities, who did what they could to improve the lives of their followers in what was a very dark time for Jews.

Could we make this world a better place, here and now, if all of us committed to spread a little more joy, a little more light, in our own corner of it? The masters invite us to take up the challenge.
