, Head of the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies, UCL

Listen to Professor Rapoport-Albert discuss how the Hasidic movement, beginning in mid 18th century Poland as a small, informal group of spiritually inspired individuals became by the early decades of the 19th century, a mass movement of spiritual revival in Judaism, sweeping through much of Central and Eastern Europe.

Professor Rapoport-Albert teaches courses and supervises postgraduate research on the history and literature of Hasidism, on the Kabbalah and other schools of Jewish esoteric spirituality, and on various aspects of medieval and early modern Jewish history.
