Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Tanya, It Was Taught, is one of the most powerful and potentially transformative books of Jewish wisdom. Written in 1797 by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad Hasidism, Tanya sets forth the fundamentals of Jewish spirituality and metaphysics. While a focus of daily study by tens of thousands of Hasidic Jews, Tanya is little known outside the world of Jewish mysticism, its kabbalistic terms and esoteric language making this essential text of Jewish spirituality inaccessible to most readers.

In this accessible volume, Rami Shapiro offers a contemporary English translation of key selections of the Hebrew text coupled with commentary designed to clarify and amplify the wisdom they contain. He brings the genius of Tanya to readers seeking to deepen their understanding of the soul and how it relates to and manifests the Divine Source from which all life comes, in which all life lives, and to which all life returns.
