9780688141967: Toward Meaningful Life: The Wisdom of the Rebbe

Toward a Meaningful Life is a spiritual road map for living-for Jews and non-Jews alike-based on the teachings of one of the foremost religious leaders of our time: Rebbe Menachem Mendel Sclmeerson. Head of the Lubavitcher movement for forty-four years and referred to throughout the world simply as "the Rebbe," Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who died in June 1994, was a sage and a visionary of the highest order.

Although the Rebbe's teachings are firmly an chored in over two thousand years of scholarship, he applies age-old truths to contemporary life, showing us how to prepare ourselves to enter the new millennium. The Rebbe teaches and embodies a distinctly universal message, calling for all humankind to lead productive and virtuous lives, and for unity between all men and women and all nations.

Now, the Rebbe's words of wisdom are available in English for the first time. Toward a Meaningful Life gives the modern reader-even the most secular-afresh perspective on every aspect of his or her life; whether it is a trivial concern or the most profound matter of the soul. The book gives the Rebbe's perspective on the range of life's cycles, from birth to youth to aging to death; from marriage, love and intimacy, work and fitness to pain and suffering; education, miracles, science, and state and religion. One learns how to bridge the dichotomy between accelerated technology and decelerated morality, between unprecedented worldwide unity and unparalleled personal disunity.


The Rebbe teaches that we now stand at the threshold of a new world--where matter and spirit converge--and that we are on the verge of entering an age of knowledge and information, using ideas that unite people as opposed to the materialism that divides them. With Toward a Meaningful Life, the reader discovers how each of us is indispensable and how we all can and must make our unique indelible mark on our common future. As a true leader; the Rebbe leads us on a journey toward personal and universal redemption, toward G-d. Simon Jacobson presents the Rebbe's teachings in profound, clear language, guiding each of us toward a meaningful life.

Review:

A wise man taught in Brooklyn for 44 years, influencing the lives of thousands and receiving accolades from heads of state. Little known outside of Jewish circles, the Rebbe, as Menachem Mendel Schneerson is lovingly known, was a fount of spiritual strength and good sense. Toward a Meaningful Life is an adaptation of his teachings that convey his strong message of love, productivity, education, and virtue, all with the grace of a good and loving God. This is the type of spiritual wisdom that can be turned to again and again.

From the Publisher:

A blueprint for living from one of the world's most revered spiritual leaders
