The life story of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, parallels the story of our century. Born in the Ukrainian-Russian town of Nikolaev in 1902, the Rebbe spent the century's and his childhood in pogrom-ridden Czarist Russia, the 20's battling the Stalinist attempt to eradicate Jewish life in the Soviet Empire, the 30's in Berlin and Paris. In 1941 he escaped Nazi-occupied Europe and settled in New York, where for the next 50 years he transformed the very fabric of Jewish life in every corner of the globe.

This timeline biography explores twenty-six milestones in the Rebbe's life and influence through text, pictures and film clips. The Rebbe was a man of ideas, so his biography is, first and foremost, a biography of ideas. Childhood, education, marriage, work, illness, bereavement; science, technology, feminism, leadership, war, money, miracles... These are much more than life-events and life-tools: they are concepts to be pondered, understood and developed in our life's quest for goodness and G-dliness. And in the Rebbe's life and teachings, these concepts take on new dimensions, shine with a new light, and present us with new and revolutionary applications.
