A short introduction and overview of 19 Kisiev.
The idea of the Baal Shem Tov was faith, which is 'stupid and simple'.
 A story and it's lesson, "why are they singing...?"
Jewish Identity cannot be explained. 2 stories 1) Vladimir Posner 2) 'You're not a Jew'.

and what they represent, in Chassidus calling to us or us reaching to Chassidus.  
Farbrengen about Chassidus in three parts (5775/2014). 
This Farbrengen was given to Neshei ChaBaD in Morristown. 
The Ba'al Shem Tov had the essence of Chassidus, what is called 'the precious stone at the center of the kings crown'.
This is the Godly energy that helps access and prioritize the Neshama.  
From the Neshama comes 1) Joy, 2) Clarity, 3) Love and 4) faith. 
The Alter Rebbe added the deep complex process of internalizing the 'Precious stone' through mind over heart work tat personalizes Chassidus.
In no way did ChaBaD intend to complicate the ultimate point, which is real faith. 
The Rebbe made huge changes in the form of Chassidus, he did this to preserve the Neshama of Chassidus.
Two big ideas dominate these changes:
1) be positive.
2) Reach out we preserve our own Chassidus by bringing someone else closer.
