"Since no one knows when his appointed time will come, I have decided to arrange matters - to instruct you in how to proceed after the length of my days." Thus begins this remarkable document which, in great measure, is a treatise on education and child-rearing.
The fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe draws upon his encyclopedic knowledge of the entire universe of Torah, including Zohar and countless commentaries to provide a foundation for the upbringing of his son who would become the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe. In the process he has created a monumental guide, based on classic Jewish thought, for all parents and educators.
This volume is fully annotated and includes comprehensive biographical notes on the authorities cited as well as sever vignettes demonstrating the author`s approach to education.
