Tanya: Exploring Chabad Philosophy
Written by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, often referred to as the Baal HaTanya, the Tanya is the fundamental work of Chabad philosophy. In this class with Rabbi Chaim Brovender we will introduce you to the chasidic classic. We will analyze the written word and learn about the background to the book.
Rabbi Chaim Brovender is the Rosh Yeshiva of WebYeshiva and President of ATID - The Academy for Torah Initiatives and Directions in Jewish Education, in Jerusalem. He was the founding Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Hamivtar and Michlelet Bruria (today, Midreshet Lindenbaum) where he pioneered the teaching of Gemara to students for whom the Talmud had been a closed book. For over forty years he has been a leading force in teaching Torah in Israel and enabling his students to "learn how to learn" according to the renowned "Brovender Method."
