Publisher's Summary

The History of Yud-Tes Kislev. Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad- Lubavitch Chasidism, was arrested, persecuted, and imprisoned in the year 1798 for his selfless efforts to strengthen the Jewish people and to disseminate Chasidic teachings. Rabbi Schneur Zalman's arrest imperiled not only his own life, but also the future of Chasidism. On the 19th of Kislev that year, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi was freed from his severe imprisonment in Petersburg, Russia, cleared of charges and with his teachings vindicated. This book explores this noteworthy turning point in the Chasidic movement, and its importance as a milestone in Jewish History.

For those in the know.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The problem is with the actual story. I did not have a problem with the delivery or the production.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I was expecting and hoping for more information about the theological differences between the two schools of Jewish thought, not just the time line of what happened.
