9780062318992: Rebbe: The Life and Teachings of Menachem M. Schneerson, the Most Influential Rabbi in Modern History

“One of the greatest religious biographies ever written.” – Dennis Prager

In this enlightening biography, Joseph Telushkin offers a captivating portrait of the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, a towering figure who saw beyond conventional boundaries to turn his movement, Chabad-Lubavitch, into one of the most dynamic and widespread organizations ever seen in the Jewish world. At once an incisive work of history and a compendium of Rabbi Schneerson's teachings, Rebbe is the definitive guide to understanding one of the most vital, intriguing figures of the last centuries.

From his modest headquarters in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the Rebbe advised some of the world's greatest leaders and shaped matters of state and society. Statesmen and artists as diverse as Ronald Reagan, Robert F. Kennedy, Yitzchak Rabin, Menachem Begin, Elie Wiesel, and Bob Dylan span the spectrum of those who sought his counsel.  Rebbe explores Schneerson's overarching philosophies against the backdrop of treacherous history, revealing his clandestine operations to rescue and sustain Jews in the Soviet Union, and his critical role in the expansion of the food stamp program throughout the United States. More broadly, it examines how he became in effect an ambassador for Jews globally, and how he came to be viewed by many as not only a spiritual archetype but a savior. Telushkin also delves deep into the more controversial aspects of the Rebbe's leadership, analyzing his views on modern science and territorial compromise in Israel, and how in the last years of his life, many of his followers believed that he would soon be revealed as the Messiah, a source of contention until this day.

From the Back Cover:

Highly motivational, Rebbe is the definitive work on a monumental and multifaceted leader, written by one of today’s most prominent and respected Jewish scholars.

Joseph Telushkin offers a captivating portrait of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, whose profound spiritual and moral teachings galvanized people of all faiths to lead more meaningful and selfless lives.

From a modest synagogue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the Rebbe spearheaded a spiritual revolution, influenced American and Israeli policies, counseled some of our greatest thinkers and statesmen, and spread his message of unconditional love and righteousness to the far corners of the world.

At once an incisive work of history and a compendium of Rabbi Schneerson’s teachings, Rebbe examines the personal side of this towering sage, while exploring in depth his achievements, core philosophy, and revolutionary initiatives, which remain as vibrant and vital as ever.

Rebbe is the authoritative guide to understanding one of the most intriguing figures of the last century, and an indispensable tool to applying his philosophies and example to one’s own life.
