About This Text
Mevo HaShearim is a 20th-century work by Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira, and serves as a sequel to the author’s Chovat HaTalmidim and Hakhsharat HaAvrekhim. It consists of theoretical discourses about the nature of prophecy and the role of the chasid, as well as practical instructions for the chasid on a journey of growth. Mevo HaShearim was intended to serve as an introduction to a work entitled Chovat HaAvrekhim, a work that Rabbi Shapira likely never got to composing before he was murdered in 1943. This edition includes an English translation and annotation by Rabbi Dr. Jon Kelsen.
Composed: c.1931 - c.1943 CE
