The Secret Of Our Souls – A Kabalistic Love Story is a new musical drama set in the midst of the political and religious turmoil of eighteenth century Poland. The play is based on the life of the great Jewish spiritual master known as the Baal Shem Tov (Master of the Holy Name) and his wife, Chana, as known through legends and stories passed down to us about them. It depicts the origin of the Chassidic movement that brought the mystical treasures of Judaism and the Kaballah within reach of the common man. The drama culminates in an epic battle between the cosmic forces of good and evil for the soul of the Baal Shem Tov.
