This volume contains a free translation of Sichos delivered by the Lubavitcher Rebbe Shlita in the Farbrengens held between Nissan of 5739 and Tishrei of 5740. It includes excerpts from every Farbrengen held during that period.

These translations are structured to appeal to an English speaking reader who is somewhat familiar with the teachings of Chassidus. The Sichos are not adapted or altered in context. Rather, they are presented, with slight changes and revisions, in the form and thought style in which they were originally recited. One major innovation has been made. The concepts which appear to be somewhat parenthetical, have been taken out from the body of the text and presented as footnotes. Hence, both the text itself and the footnotes are the Rebbe Shlita’s words. From time to time, the translators have added their own notes of explanation which are labeled as such. Great effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of these translations; however, it carries no official authority. As in all translations, the possibility for inadvertent errors exists.

This volume is the third of its kind published by Sichos In English. We hope that our previous publications, and those that will follow will make available the teachings of Chassidus and of the Rebbe Shlita to many who were previously unable to study them.

The publication of this volume took place in the days preceding Yud-Alef Nissan. May this text lead to the fulfillment of “Then we, Your nation and the sheep of Your pasture, shall thank You forever, For generation after generation we shall relate Your praise.”
