A Torah discourse of the Lubavitcher Rebbe usually revolves around a question, sometimes a seemingly microscopic tension serving as a point of departure for the Rebbe's discussion.
To hear or read such a discussion is to undertake a journey in which we are challenged and forced to move, and at the end stand far from where we begin.
Here, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of Great Britain, serves as guide to that journey, elucidating the question in each discourse and explaining its context.
In this collection of lucid adaptations of the Rebbe's talks on the weekly Torah readings and Jewish holidays, each question is not only resolved but also revealed to be the starting point of a major spiritual search, a journey to the inner sanctum of Torah.
With descriptive introductions to each chapter and extensive indexes, Torah Studies is an important gateway to the Rebbe's teaching and legacy.
