The Rebbe Shlomo of Rodomsk pithily declared, "Whoever believes all the
miracle stories about the Baal Shem Tov in Shivhei HaBaal Shem Tov is a
fool, but whoever denies that he could have done them is an apikoros [a
heretic]." Similarly, the Rebbe Mordechai of Neshkiz explains, "Even if a
story about him never actually occurred, and there was no such miracle, it
was in the power of the Baal Shem Tov, may his memory be a blessing for the
life of the World-to-Come, to perform everything."[2]
