A Tale of Two Souls

Tanya’s Guide to Living a Not-So-Ordinary Life

 

Once upon a time, every book was about being perfect. Every book told you, “This is how you are supposed to be; now go and be that.”

 

Then Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of the Chabad movement, wrote a book for the rest of us, called Tanya. It’s the first book of Kabbalistic enlightenment for everyone, charting a practical roadmap for higher living.

 

Join us as we study Tanya and discover for ourselves how ordinary people can indeed lead extraordinary lives.
