One of the fundamental concepts explained by the Alter Rebbe, author of the Tanya, is that we live each week with the Torah. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson actualized this ideal by dedicating several hours each week to discuss the Torah portion and its relevance to our lives.

The Curtain Parted takes these often lofty concepts taught by the Rebbe and presents them in accessible and simple language. Through chapters divided according to the Torah portion, we are shown the relevance of every parshah to our lives, and how every story and teaching is indeed timely and relevant.
