The greatness of the Rebbeim of Lubavitch and their incredible accomplishments, mesiras nefesh and love for all Yidden is well known. The complete story of their lives, however, has been unavailable to the English reader.
In response to this dire need, we are pleased to present a new series: The Rebbeim: A Biography. The first volume focuses on the life of Rav Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the Baal HaTanya V`HaShulchan Aruch. Or as he is called in Lubavitch, the Alter Rebbe.
"Deftly compiled by Rabbi Sholom DovBer Avtzon, The Rebbeim: The Life Of The Alter Rebbe is the latest title in "The Rebbeim Biography Series". An in-depth study of the influence and advisory wisdom of Rabbi Zalman during the political struggles of the 1700`s in which time Napoleon engaged his power driven pursuit of military dominance over Europe and Russia., The Rebbeim details every move of the Alter Rabbi in his council of his fellow Russian Jews and a near futile escape from the army of Napoleon. The Alter Rebbe acutely and knowledgeably informs readers of the pure holiness and decency of the Alter Rebbe`s life and work in behalf of his community. A work of impressive scholarship, The Alter Rebbe, enhanced with a detailed mapping of his family, is very highly recommended..."
