Toward a Meaningful Life: The Wisdom of the Rebbeby Simon Jacobson
Synopses & Reviews
Toward a Meaningful Life is a spiritual road map for living-for Jews and non-Jews alike-based on the teachings of one of the foremost religious leaders of our time: Rebbe Menachem Mendel Sclmeerson. Head of the Lubavitcher movement for forty-four years and referred to throughout the world simply as "the Rebbe," Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who died in June 1994, was a sage and a visionary of the highest order.
Although the Rebbe's teachings are firmly an chored in over two thousand years of scholarship, he applies age-old truths to contemporary life, showing us how to prepare ourselves to enter the new millennium. The Rebbe teaches and embodies a distinctly universal message, calling for all humankind to lead productive and virtuous lives, and for unity between all men and women and all nations.
Now, the Rebbe's words of wisdom are available in English for the first time. Toward a Meaningful Life gives the modern reader-even the most secular-afresh perspective on every aspect of his or her life; whether it is a trivial concern or the most profound matter of the soul. The book gives the Rebbe's perspective on the range of life's cycles, from birth to youth to aging to death; from marriage, love and intimacy, work and fitness to pain and suffering; education, miracles, science, and state and religion. One learns how to bridge the dichotomy between accelerated technology and decelerated morality, between unprecedented worldwide unity and unparalleled personal disunity.
