In a paradigm of true leadership, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of sainted memory, embraced all issues of import to Jews, Jewish life, and beyond, spurring a Jewish revival that continues to gain momentum even after his passing. Through his incisive and illuminating Torah expositions, the Rebbe inspired an awareness of a attainable higher reality and sparked an enthusiasm for Torah study among scholars and layman alike.
The essays collected here are selected from the Rebbe's investigations of the weekly Torah portion. In these studies of our most sacred text, the Rebbe weaves together many centuries of traditional Jewish scholarship, focusing them through the prism of his intense Chassidic spirituality. Time and again the result is a fresh insight into the great themes of Jewish life, themes no less relevant today than in our long and distinguished past.
Torah Studies represents only a fragment of the vast body of the Rebbe's teaching. His collected writings and disourses are gathered in more than 200 volumes and constitute an immense legacy to future generations. They include Torah exposition, analysis of Jewish law, Talmudic discourses, explorations of Jewish mysticism and letters of guidance to Jews throughout the world.

Thoroughly met my expectations as an introduction to Rabbi Schneerson. The lectures are dense, demanding, brilliantly-written, precisely-performed. Many profound observations deserving attention irrespective of one's identification with the three modern formats. The mastership is entrancing.
Addicted to reading traditional books. Overwhelmed by backlog of books to read. If it's early Americana then I want it.
This book was a great resource to just sit back and fill the mind with knowledge and wisdom. Schneerson was certainly a special teacher.
