Hasidism is one of the great movements of faith that shows directly that the human soul can live as a whole, united in itself in communication with the wholeness of being, and indeed not merely individual souls, but a multitude of souls bound into a community. The realms that are apparently separate from each other by necessity recognize in the exalted hours of such movement the illegitimacy of their reciprocal delimitation and fuse into one. The clear flame of human unity embraces all forces and ascends to the divine unity.
The unification of the ethical and religious spheres as it has been accomplished in exemplary fashion in Hasidism, even if only in a short-lived flowering, brings forth what we, in our human world, call holiness. We can know holiness as a human quality hardly otherwise than through such unification. It is important to come to know it.
