Author: Rabbi Y. Green
The Rebbe Rayatz wrote this discourse soon after the founding of the original Yeshivat Tomchei Tmimim at the instruction of his father, the Rebbe Rashab, Rabbi Shalom Dovber Schneerson, with his ongoing guidance.
In this discourse, which deals with the guidance of the person towards positive character traits and the improvement of their emotional attributes, the Rebbe emphasizes the differences between education and guidance and the difficulties that typify each one of them. We also learn about the various levels within education and guidance towards positive character traits as expressed at different ages and stages.
