That’s what people have been saying about the new volume released from this week, which explains the fundamentals of Judaism according to the Rebbe’s sichos. “Without exaggeration,” wrote Rabbi Sholom Lipskar of “the Shul” in Bal Harbor, “this is one of the finest resource/study texts that I have encountered in the English language.” Rabbi Immanuel Schochet declared, “I am very impressed… The scholarship is profound and thorough, yet the arrangement of the material is well-organized into easily understandable lessons.”
Modeled around the Thirteen “Ani Ma’amin’s” of the Rambam, this trailblazing new book presents the Rebbe’s Torah in an amazingly clear and profound manner. Rabbi Simon Jacobson recommended the new edition as offering “a sophisticated approach to Jewish thought, both for individual and group study. Its step by step lessons do all the homework for you, providing teachers with a fully prepared series of classes.”
On seeing the book for the first time many people are simply taken aback by its stunning appearance and user-friendliness. “I couldn’t put it down for well over an hour,” said one of the teachers in Mayonot in Yerushalayim, “I am enthralled by your idea, and by the extraordinarily effective and brilliant manner in which you carried it out.”
It’s an ideal core text for schools, adult-education, or for personal study. It’s the book you will want to learn first with your mekuravim and to give out as gifts. The new volume being launched at a heavily subsidized introductory price of just $22. In Judaica Stores worldwide or directly from Kol Menachem—The Gutnick Library of Jewish Classics. .
