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.

Lessons in Tanya is a well-lit and accessible gateway to the Tanya - the fundamental, classic work upon which all concepts of Chabad Chasidism are based. The Tanya is indispensable to an understanding of the Chasidic movement and the philosophy behind it. More importantly, it offers guidance for every facet of the day-to-day life of a Jew in his or her service to G‑d.

Lessons In Tanya takes the acute ideas and concepts of the Tanya and makes them readily accessible to the eager student, as it leads the reader through every paragraph and page, illuminating the mystical, often allusive, Talmudic, Kabbalistic, and Scriptural verses and concepts. It fills many gaps in what the terse Tanya text assumes to be the reader's background knowledge.

Each of the lectures was examined and amended by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneersohn, so that much of the material includes the Rebbe's insights and explanatory comments.

A life changing book
This is a "must to read" book for every Jew. I do believe that our modern society has failed - spiritually, morally, intelectually, emotionally - and that's why we see all those mental disorders and emptiness and the loss of values and hatred and lonliness. Progress was too quick and too extreme for people to adapt. At least some tradition and faith and humility are required to regain our long lost sanity, humanity and compassion.

Life Changing
I have been studying Tanya on-line for several years now. It has been life-changing, and helps me cope with stress and challenges. It keeps me grounded in a praxis of loving-kindness.

But Ephraim...
If it is destructive, it would be because the things it would destroy are probably unsound to begin with. The push and the pull. The testing, and the refinement of metals, etc. The best gold is smelted many times, and then put through the acid test again, and again. The finest diamonds and those which have been under the highest pressure of the earth. a destroying malak does so because that's his job. Holiness is the goal. Anything that appraoched Mt. Sinai was destroyed; people not authorized, sheep, problemo.

What Chabad did for me
I contacted Downtown Chabad of Toronto. Today I am such a proud Jew who is close to G-D. I not only understand the holidays, I lived them. Downtown Chabad has enriched my life and made better person and I can only Thank G-D for Chabad.
