About this title


The sheer number of Jewish laws infuses everyday life with endless opportunities to touch the divine within. With this modern translation, the English-reading public can study Jewish law as taught by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the Alter Rebbe, from the original source. In this new edition, the translation page faces the newly reset Hebrew text. Notations appear when the Alter Rebbe's rulings are at variance with Rabbi Yosef Karo's Shulchan Aruch and when other halachic works cite the subject at hand. The handsome, hardbound volume is a desk friendly 7.5"x 9.5" format with a satin ribbon marker.

About the Author:

Rabbi Schneur Zalman was born on the 18th day of Elul (which is also the birthday of the Baal-Shem-Tov), in the year 5505 (1745), in the town of Liozna, province of Mohilev, in White Russia, which was part of Poland at that time. His parents, Baruch and Rivkah, had three sons, all of whom were outstanding Talmud scholars and Rabbis... He came from a family that originally lived in Bohemia and directly traced its ancestry to the famed Rabbi Yehuda Lowe (Maharal) of Prague. R' Baruch was a secret follower of the Baal-Shem-Tov, and when Schneur Zalman reached the age of three years, his father took him to the Baal-Shem-Tov for the traditional haircutting ceremony. That was the only time that Rabbi Schneur Zalman saw the Baal-Shem-Tov in his life, though he was fifteen years old when the Baal-Shem-Tov passed away. It was the Baal-Shem-Tov's wish that Rabbi Schneur Zalman should find his own way of Chassidus.... When Schneur Zalman reached the age of Bar Mitzvah and, in accordance with custom, delivered his first public discourse on the Talmud, he was acclaimed as an outstanding Talmud
scholar. He was thereupon elected as an honorary member of the local Chevra Kaddisha and entered into the pinkas (Register) of the community with titles and honors given only to mature scholars of exceptional merit... The fame of the young iluy (prodigy of learning) reached Vitebsk, where one of its most prominent Jews, Yehuda Leib Segal, a man of considerable wealth and scholarship, and a leader in the com¬munity, desired to have him as his son-in¬law. Rabbi Schneur Zalman was fifteen years old when he married Sterna, Yehuda Leib's daughter... Before his marriage, Rabbi Schneur Zalman began to take an active interest in the economic position of his brethren. He had always felt that the towns and cities were too overcrowded to offer many opportunities to the Jews for mak¬ing a living, and that more Jews should settle on the land and engage in agricultural pursuits. In his younger days he stood up on a wagon in the market place in Liozna, where many Jews had gathered for the local fair, and delivered a talk on the need of settling on the land. Now that he was married and in possession of a substantial dowry, he created a special fund, with the consent of his wife, to help Jewish families settle on the land... Rabbi Schneur Zalman set out for Miezricz together with his brother Rabbi Yehuda Leib... the horse collapsed. Rabbi Schneur Zalman then learned that his brother had left home without his wife's consent. He urged him to return home, while he himself continued his journey to Miezricz on foot... His first impressions were not encouraging, but Rabbi Schneur Zalman decided to stay, and before long he realized how saintly and learned Rabbi Dov Ber was, and became his devoted disciple...[when he was]twenty-five years old, Rabbi Dov Ber chose him, the youngest of his disciples, to re-edit the Shulchan Aruch... Several years later he began to work out his Chabad system of Chassidus, which he eventually published in his famous work Likkutei Amarim, or Tanya...
Rabbi Schneur Zalman established a school of selected disciples in his home¬town Liozna... He introduced many important ordinances to improve the standards of prayer and religious observances. He insisted that the prayers in the Chassidic congregations should be recited unhurriedly and with devotion. He established the proper text of the prayers, Nusach Ari, publishing a Nusach Ari Siddur (in two volumes). The nusach is often called Nusach Cha-bad. ..(excerpts from the text written by Nissan Mindel, published by Kehot)
