Volume two: Sha'ar Ha-Yichud Ve-Ha-Emunah (Gateway to Unity and Faith)
An astoundingly clear adaptation of Tanya, one of the most influential works of Jewish spiritual thought ever written, penned by Chasidic Rebbe, Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi (1745-1812).
Gateway to Unity and Faith is one of the clearest and most enduring works on the meaning of "G-d is one" from a Chasidic point of view. Through carefully reading traditional texts, the author radically re-imagines the meaning of Jewish Monotheism, and imparts a sense of nearness and direct accessibility to G-d, beyond the confines of religious practice.
Volume two is a complete and independent work which stands on its own and does not require the prior study of volume one. Many readers, in fact, find this volume in particular the best gateway to the world of Chasidic thought. This new translation and commentary, by best-selling author Rabbi Chaim Miller, renders the text relevant for the contemporary reader with elegant simplicity. The Practical Tanya will guide you on the path of spiritual consciousness to a state of inner freedom and liberation.
