Watch: Mezritcher Maggid's Kever

Yosef Shidler and Mendel Mish of CJ Studios traveled to Ukraine and filmed the holy sites. Part 5: The kevorim of the Maggid of Mezritch and Rabbi Zusha.

Rabbi Dov Ber of Mezeritch was known as the Maggid of Mezritch. He was a disciple of Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Chassidism and was chosen as his successor to lead the early movement.

Rabbi Dov Baer is regarded as the first systematic exponent of the mystical philosophy underlying the teachings of the Baal Shem Tov, and through his teaching and leadership, the main architect of the movement.

He established his base in Mezhirichi (in Wołyń), which moved the center of Hasidism from the Baal Shem Tov's Medzhybizh (in Podolia), where he focused his attention on raising a close circle of great disciples to spread the movement.

After his death, avoiding the unified leadership of the first two generations, this third generation of leadership took their different interpretations and disseminated across appointed regions of Eastern Europe. Under the inspiration of their teacher, this rapidly spread Hasidism beyond Ukraine, to Poland, Galicia and Russia.

His teachings appear in Magid Devarav L'Yaakov, Or Torah, Likutim Yekarim, Or Ha'emet, Kitvei Kodesh, Shemuah Tovah, and in the works authored by his disciples.

His inner circle of disciples, known as the Chevraia Kadisha ("Holy Brotherhood"), included his son Rabbi Avraham HaMalach (The Angel), Rabbi Nachum of Czernobyl, Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk, Rabbi Zusha of Hanipol, Rabbi Levi Yitzchok of Berditchev, Rabbi Boruch of Medzhybizh, Rabbi Aharon (HaGadol) of Karlin, Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk, Rabbi Shmuel Shmelke of Nikolsburg and Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, founder of Chabad Chassidism.

Yosef Shidler and Mendel Mish of CJ Studios traveled to Ukraine to filmed the holy Jewish sites. In part 5 presented on COLlive.com, they show the holy gravesite of the Maggid, Rabbi Zusha and others.
