Link The product of an exhaustive, years-long, worldwide research project, Early Years tells the riveting story of the early life of the Lubavitcher Rebbe who, as much as anyone else, set the course of Jewish history in the twentieth century. What was his childhood like? What type of schooling did he receive? Who were his mentors and teachers? When did he first meet his father-in-law and predecessor, and what was the relationship between them like? At what point did the ideas that were to transform the landscape of post-Holocaust Jewry begin to take form in his mind? These questions and others about the Rebbe's early life have never been answered comprehensively. Presenting newly-uncovered government documents, private journals, letters and diaries, Rabbis Boruch Oberlander and Elkanah Shmotkin have produced a highly-engaging account which offers an unimpeded view of the formative years of modern Judaism's most recognized personality.
Join us for a book review with Rabbi Zalman Mochkin Feb 21 1-2:15pm Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center 18900 NE 25th Ave, Miami, FL 33180, USA
