Author: Rabbi Yosef Y. Schneerson
Translator: Rabbi Eliyahu Touger
Considered to be the "last will and testament" of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Shneerson.
The discourse was released for the 10th of Shevat in the year 5710 (1950); on that day Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak passed away. Chasidim customarily study Basi L`Gani each year in honor of the yartzeit, and each year his successor, the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, explained another of its chapters in depth.
The Rebbe`s exposition of Basi L`Gani, the first Chasidic discourse he delivered upon assuming the mantle of leadership in 5711 (1951), was also a declaration of his own mission and goals. This widely acclaimed English edition will enable many more Jews to participate in the study of this important work.
