"There's no place for honorifics
or domination in a place
where Holiness is revealed."

Gashmius Magazine is a platform for a non-hierarchical Judaism that

is rooted in, but not confined to, Hasidic sources and teachings. We strive to make the wealth of Jewish mystical spirituality accessible to anyone who might find it meaningful. Central to this project is the Hasidic idea that holiness is found in all of physicality; our obligation to recognize and uplift that holiness guides both our religiosity and our progressivism.
