The morsels appearing in this book are selected from among the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. His innovative insights continue to inspire Jews from all walks of life.

My parents, Rabbi and Mrs. Moshe Polter uhjha, have guided me thoughtfully over the years, and the patience of my wife Rochel whj, a has encouraged me throughout this undertaking. May this zechus bring us nachas from our children.

Among those who enriched the manuscript with their helpful editorial suggestions I would particularly like to thank Rabbi Yonah Avtzon and his staff at Sichos In English; Nacha Sara Leaf; and Rabbi Eli Cohen.
