About the Course

The Lubavitcher Rebbe is known for many things: his leadership of the Chabad movement, his love for every Jew, and his army of emissaries, which can be found in nearly every country around the globe. But within all of those activities there runs a single, unifying thread: a singular devotion to - and unique understanding of - the Torah. Join us on this four-week course as we glimpse some of the Rebbe’s unique insights into the Five Books of Moses, the Talmud, and Jewish Law. Together we will come to better appreciate the deep and relevant truths that they contain, and how they shaped a movement that has changed the world.

Course Syllabus

A Wedding, a Torch and a Table: Talmud with the Rebbe
July 2, 2019
Hillel and Shammai were two great sages of the Talmudic era, known for their opposing views on nearly every issue under the sun. From the proper way to dance before a bride to how best to set a table, we will study the views of these incredible figures through the lens of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. What unifying principles will we uncover? Find out in this first installment of the Rebbe's Teachings!
More Than Just Commentary: Rashi with the Rebbe
July 9, 2019
Go to any synagogue in the world and you will find numerous copies of the Five Books of Moses. Beneath the primary text on every page, there lies a subscript penned in an unfamiliar alphabet. This is Rashi - the greatest Torah commentary of all time. What novel insights could be made into this timeless text? Join us for this second installment of the Rebbe's Teachings!
G-d Is in the Details: Jewish Law with the Rebbe
July 16, 2019
Which came first? The ring or the betrothal? In this third installment of the Rebbe's Teachings, we will be taking a deep-dive into the nitty gritty of Jewish legal code. From how to order marriage rites through the legalities of divorce, we will explore the way that these little details teach us lessons for life. Join us as we study Jewish Law with the Rebbe!
The Voice That Has No Echo: Chassidic Philosophy with the Rebbe
July 23, 2019
The Chassidic masters were revolutionaries of their time. Breathing new life into a world that was still reeling from the pogroms and expulsions of the middle ages, they set Jewish thought on a new course. In this last installment of the Rebbe's Teachings, we will get a glimpse of the Rebbe's approach to studying Chassidic philosophy. You won't want to miss out!

  • This was an amazing course and well done. I was hesitate at first about the ability to "connect" with the subject and and amazed how my life focus has changed after just 4 weeks. Thank you Rabbi Stein and Chabad.org Courses. Shabbat Shalom.
