Zusha: Online Repository of Hasidic Tales
Today a new website was unveiled that hopes to be the ultimate online repository of Hasidic tales, at least in Hebrew. Zusha, the brainchild of the Israeli journalist Sara Beck, wants to make the Hasidic tale available in a modern and accessible digital format. Each story is presented in a more modern and accessible Hebrew language version than the original, along with the original source itself, some basic explanations about language or terms, and sometimes commentary by different individuals. The stated goal is to collect “tens of thousands” of Hasidic tales and make them available to the public.
