Author: Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi
Translators: Nissan Mindel, Nissan Mangel, Zalman Posner, Jacob Immanuel Schochet
Tanya, the magnum opus of the founder of Chabad-Lubavitch Chasidism, is indispensable to understanding the philosophy of the Chasidic movement and the essence of the Jewish soul. It unifies Kabbalah and Talmud to explain the "mechanics" of Creation, the infinitude of G-d, and the structure of the human personality.
For a period of more than twenty years, the author, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi (1745-1812), refined its style and form so punctiliously that meaning can be found in every word and letter.
This appealing bi-lingual edition, which is divided into sections for daily study, includes a lucid translator`s introduction to each section and an in-depth explanation of many concepts and Kabbalistic terms.
