Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Rami Shapiro is one of the great Jewish spiritual teachers of our generation. This volume opens one of the all-time classics of Jewish spirituality for beginning students of all faiths. Through his poetic translations and paraphrases, he not only unlocks Tanya but also adds a classic of his own to our library of personal yearning."
Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, Emanu-El Scholar, Congregation Emanu-El, San Francisco; author, The Way Into Jewish Mystical Tradition and other books

"A masterful unfolding of Tanya … paves a way for readers to find a path to God that is a 'returning through kindness.' I can't ever imagine teaching Tanya again without pointing toward this edition."
Reb Mimi Feigelson, mashpiah ruchanit (spiritual mentor); lecturer of Rabbinics, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, American Jewish University

"With insight and nuance ... opens the mystical wisdom of Hasidism to spiritual seekers of all faiths. Both the translation and the commentary guide the reader to a transformed religious consciousness."
Dr. Eitan Fishbane, author, As Light Before Dawn: The Inner World of a Medieval Kabbalist
