Rabbi Eliezrie explained that Hasidism is a dimension within traditional Judaism. "Really, you donít have to label Jews as different kinds of Jews. We see Jews as Jews. We see Jews who perhaps use different tools or different mediums within Judaism to grow spiritually." Hasidism is a medium which helps an individual "reach to a level of spiritual perfection, spiritual development," he explained. "You will not necessarily find that there is a card-carrying Hasidic Jew, but rather Hasidic philosophy helps an individual have a greater awareness of spirituality and godliness. We hope that this awareness will serve as a catalyst for a greater sense of observance and commitment.
