Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi and Habad Hasidim who founded it were seen by themselves, by other Hasidic streams and by many scholars as exceptional in the Hasidic landscape. This is due to their theoretical and educational tendencies that influenced different motifs in the Habad work. This deviation is also evident in the Hasidic name, since Hassidic courts were often named after their colonies, while Habad was named after the three intellectual counts: wisdom, understanding and knowledge.

It is a complex thought that has a sympathetic attitude, while highlighting its limitations and dangers.
