Written by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi (1745-1812), the founder of Chabad, Tanya is the central text of Chabad Chassidism. Its stated aim is to show a path to realizing one's purpose and developing a deeper relationship with G-d.
Discovering Jewish Mysticism
The Key to Kabbalah will open up the world of Jewish mysticism, giving you your first thirst-quenching sips of the teachings of Pnimiyut HaTorah, the inner dimension of the Torah. This volume provides an overview of the history, principles, content and nature of the Kabbalah and introduces the breadth and depth of the inner-spiritual dimensions of Torah
The Chassidic response to the tension between emotive religious experience and the categorical imperatives of Halacha, and the philosophy of Chabad activism for religious revival which has revolutionized the Jewish religious life and conciousness, are so strongly identified with chassidic thought that many do not realize that they derive wholly from the Talmud, Midrash, and other classic traditions.
A Chassidic Perspective on Living Torah
Nechama Greisman's classes on the weekly sidra are conveyed through a unique perspective - that of a chassidic woman.
As a carpenter employs tools to build a home, so G-d utilized the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, the alef-beis, to form heaven and earth. In Letters of Light, the essence of these holy letters is explored, illustrating how the letters continue to be a source of creation, reflection, prayer and inspiration in our everyday lives.
Genuine joy comes from profound spiritual awareness on life and an absolute clarity of direction, living for a purpose. The Chassidic Approach to Joy explores the mystical depths of one's soul as well as the universe at large, on the well-traveled path to pure, internal happiness.
The weekly Torah portion provides context and inspiration to our lives. Join us as we travel together to see how the laws and stories from each Torah portion are relevant to the spiritual psyche of each Jew. Lessons for life based on the Rebbe's talks.
Secret Steps to Jewish Happiness
A sequential approach to self improvement from the author's perspective and topics important to personal growth in the modern age.
Secret Steps to a Happy Jewish Marriage
It is obvious that when a couple who have real love and regard for each other then there is achieved the deepest level of intimacy, described in Torah as “one flesh”. Chassidus points out this is also “one soul”.
These concise, inspiring and articulate discussions on Moshiach, arranged according to the weekly and holiday Torah portions, are based on the works of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, and allow one to truly "live with the time" and "live with Moshiach."
A series in seven parts
A Series Of Essays On Fundamental Principles Of Faith
We all believe in G-d. Some of us know that we do. Some of us refuse to admit it. Others who profess to believe are vague as to what they believe in. These essays probe to the core of some of the essential issues of Jewish faith and provide explanations based on the mystic understanding of Chabad Chassidic teachings.
Questions and answers exploring the very core of Judaism. With such questions as life's purpose, the existence of G-d, the purpose of the Chosen People, the holocaust, science vs religion and intermarriage.

Sichos in Which the Rebbe Advanced Our Emotional Frontiers
The Baal Shem Tov generated new energy that roused the Jewish people to spiritual wakefulness. One of the areas where this was keenly felt was the realm of emotion. Before the advent of the chassidic movement, prayer and Torah study were primarily cold and cerebral. The Baal Shem Tov set the souls of the Jewish people on fire, stirring them to a higher pitch of love for G-d and enabling them to develop deeper bonds with their fellowmen.

Talks of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson on Bitachon: Trusting in G-d
The Baal Shem Tov taught that “G-d loves every Jew like a father loves a son born to him in his old age.” Indeed, His love for us surpasses a father’s love. It is only that we, limited mortals that we are, have no better terms to describe His love. At every single step; G-d takes each of us by the hand and leads us in the way that is best for us, both materially and spiritually.
