Publisher Comments:

With a new foreword and chapter that address the upheaval that followed the events of September 11, Toward a Meaningful Life is a spiritual road map for living based on the teachings of one of the foremost religious leaders of our time: Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Head of the Lubavitcher movement for forty-four years and recognized throughout the world simply as "the Rebbe," Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who passed away in June 1994, was a sage and visionary of the highest order.

Toward a Meaningful Life gives Jews and non-Jews alike fresh perspectives on every aspect of their lives — from birth to death, youth to old age; marriage, love, intimacy, and family; the persistent issues of career, health, pain, and suffering; and education, faith, science, and government. We learn to bridge the divisions between accelerated technology and decelerated morality, between unprecedented worldwide unity and unparalleled personal disunity.

At the threshold of a new world where matter and spirit converge, the Rebbe proposes spiritual principles that unite people as opposed to the materialism that divides them. In doing so, he continues to lead us toward personal and universal redemption, a meaningful life, and God.

KIER8, December 9, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
The late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi M. M. Schneerson (1902-1994) embraced almost all issues of import to Jews, Jewish life, and beyond, spurring a Jewish revival that continues to gain momentum even after his death. Based on the Rebbe's teachings, his chief oral scribe for fourteen years, Rabbi Simon Jacobson, has written "Toward a Meaningful Life, New Edition: The Wisdom of the Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson". It includes many of the Rebbe's pearls of wisdom and gives practical methods for bringing meaning to every minute and every aspect of the day.
