About Tanya Rabbi

“It’s incredible that he’s managed to fit such a great G‑d into such a small book!”

Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev

The Tanya, written by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of the Chabad chassidic movement, distills four millennia of Jewish wisdom into one book to answer the great personal and existential questions of life. It is one of the most extraordinary and revolutionary books of spirituality ever composed, weaving together classical moral teachings, esoteric Kabbalah, practical mysticism and Jewish philosophy. Essentially intended as a guidebook for the spiritual seeker, the Tanya illuminates the way we think about the soul in terms of our relationship with G-d, ourselves, one another, and our place in the world.

The purpose of Tanya Rabbi is to elucidate the teachings of Chabad in general and Tanya in particular. Rabbi Ronnie Fine, a student and seasoned emissary of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the most recent leader Chabad, has been teaching Tanya and Chassidus for over four decades. Rabbi Fine makes these teachings engaging, enjoyable and applicable to our lives today.
