Overview

The seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994), was perhaps the twentieth century's most well-known Orthodox Jewish leader. For over forty years, as spiritual leader of the Habad-Lubavitch Hasidic Movement, he spearheaded the worldwide reconstruction of post-Holocaust Jewish religious life, inspiring a re-awakening of Jewish awareness and observance in as many as fifty countries. His initiatives impacted on many individuals formerly far removed from Jewish living. This work is the culmination of five years of intensive research into Rabbi Schneerson's writings undertaken for the doctoral degree within the Graduate School of Education at Melbourne's La Trobe University. It is the first systematic analysis of Rabbi Schneerson's educational philosophy conducted according to strict academic criteria.
