5.0 out of 5 starsA Study Book of Tanya to Cherish!
Reviewed in the United States on June 8, 2018
I have always wanted to have a detailed study book on the Tanya! I love the Practical Lessons appearing along the side of the pages in bolder type. There is the mixture of Hebrew along with English for translation purposes throughout the chapters, and excellent references placed within each paragraph or section of study. Unfortunately, I was not raised in a Jewish home, so I have had to seek out Jewish Spirituality on my own time and did not learn Hebrew. But maybe if it had been so, I might not have had the longing that I so desired. Through the years, I came to discover that I do have Jewish ancestors buried in a much older part of a cemetery outside of the town that I grew up in. It became part of the land that a Catholic Church bought up in the beginnings of their establishment in that town. The Star of David still appears on their old gravestones. So I'm definitely an Inbetweener in more ways than one and was so delighted when I discovered my Jewish heritage.
This book elucidates the Tanya in ways that other translations and aids in the study of Tanya, the building block of Chassidic knowledge, simply don’t have. The English translation is fresh and modern but most importantly it accurately brings down the message that the author intended.
I had difficulty understanding the 5-book set “Lessons in Tanya”, and so was glad to find this alternate version of Tanya. However, the Kindle version downloads only some of the pages — possibly just every other one. The sentence at the end of every single page doesn’t continue correctly to the next page.

The book itself looks amazing but the Kindle version is greatly flawed and unreadable as it is missing many pages and so it is impossible to follow. I much prefer a Kindle version since the book is so big but unfortunately it is unreadable.
