Publisher's Summary

Few luminaries in Jewish history, particularly in modern times, have made as lasting and profound a contribution to our spiritual heritage as Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi (1745-1812). His works embrace the entire spectrum of Jewish thought - mysticism, philosophy, psychology, ethics, and law - and represent an expression of unparalleled creative genius. This richly detailed biography traces Rabbi Schneur Zalman's life from his childhood and formative years to his trials and triumphs as a leader who revolutionized Jewish life. It reveals many hitherto unknown facts and offers the listener considerable insight into his extraordinary strength of character. Vilified by many of his contemporaries and persecuted by the Czar, Rabbi Schneur Zalman emerged victorious; today his teachings continue to inspire and vitalize Jewish life all over the world.

    "Biography of the Origins of Lubavitch Chabad"
    Would you listen to Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi again? Why?

    Yes - Although I purchased the book to learn more about the Alter Rebbe, I found that the book was more about the origins of Lubavitch Chabad than the Rebbe himself. It gave me insights into the movement's struggles to survive in the early years.


    Would you recommend Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes - It gives information about the Alter Rebbe, but more about the origins of Lubavitch Chabad.


    What about Shlomo Zacks’s performance did you like?

    The British accent was nice.


    Any additional comments?

    To re-emphasize my main point—to me this book was more about the origins of Lubavitch Chabad, than the Alter Rebbe himself. Yes, it gave information about his childhood, etc., but the main focus was on the struggle of the movement to survive in the face of a tremendous amount of opposition. I would have liked it to be more about the Alter Rebbe, like Telushkin's incredible work on the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe.
