A record of talks delivered by the Rebbe Yosef Yitzchak in Latvia, Poland,
and the U.S. during the years 1929-1950.
The talks embrace an overwhelming range of subjects, from the Rebbe`s
memories of childhood and family to his eloquent and sometimes impassioned
passages of exhortation; They include glimpses of faces and sounds
that conjure up the mystique of a vanished shtetl world, delicately-drawn
vignettes, fascinating chronicles of the early history of the Chasidic
movement, and creative instructive expositions of Chasidic concepts.
One theme links all of these subjects like a thread of gold:
the intense spiritual and personal bond with all his fellow Jews, that
is of the essence of the very concept of a Rebbe.
