Summary
  • "The seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994), was perhaps the twentieth century's most well-known Orthodox Jewish leader. For over forty years, as spiritual leader of the Habad-Lubavitch Hasidic Movement, he spearheaded the worldwide reconstruction of post-Holocaust Jewish religious life, inspiring a re-awakening of Jewish awareness and observance in as many as fifty countries. His initiatives impacted on many individuals formerly far removed from Jewish living." "This work is the first systematic analysis of Rabbi Schneerson's educational philosophy conducted according to strict academic criteria." "Rabbi Schneerson's educational contribution has been largely unexamined and remains undisclosed to both the Jewish world beyond Habad and to contemporary students of religious and moral education. Through the analysis in this book, it will be argued that Rabbi Schneerson's teachings hold import not only for the Habad fraternity but for communities and individuals in the wider world."--Jacket
