Description

From a small synagogue In Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the late Rebbe Schneerson impacted the policies of US presidents and politicians, counseled some of our greatest thinkers, and spread his teachings of love and righteousness to the far corners of the world. Drawn from the Rebbe's private correspondence, Rebbe is a rich and illuminating portrait of this remarkable man who was a devoted spiritual leader, a tireless counselor, and a controversial advocate for women's rights and community openness. Telushkin pays tribute to the Rebbe's legacy-- his teachings of love, education, and respect-- which have become engrained in millions of Jews and non-Jews alike.

Professional reviews

"The fascinating biography of one of the most influential rabbis in modern Jewish history is competently narrated by Rich Topol. He deals smoothly with many foreign languages, primarily Yiddish and Hebrew, sometimes varying his articulation to create subtle characterizations. For this book, the listener is likely to care more about the subject matter than the narration. Rabbi Schneerson was the leader of the Chabad movement and is most often referred to as the Lubavitcher Rebbe, a title derived from the Russian town of the movement's origin. Because of Rabbi Schneerson, there are Chabad houses all over the world, including many remote places with tiny Jewish populations. His secular and religious knowledge both are considered unequaled. Jewish outreach has never seen the like. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
