Rebbe by Joseph Telushkin
Hosts: Dana and Eileen Wallen, 2723 Calhoun Street
This enlightening biography offers a captivating portrait of the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, one of the most towering, vital and intriguing figures of the last centuries who turned his movement, Chabad-Lubavitch, into one of the most dynamic and widespread organizations ever seen in the Jewish world. It is both an incisive work of history and a compendium of the Rabbi’s teachings. The Rebbe advised some of the world’s greatest leaders, in effect becoming an ambassador for Jews globally, and how he came to be viewed not only as a spiritual archetype but a savior. Telushkin also delves into the more controversial aspects of the Rebbe’s leadership regarding his views on modern science and the State of Israel, and how in the last years of his life, many of his followers believed he would be revealed as the Messiah, a source of contention until this day.
NOTE: At our October meeting, we will be choosing the books we’ll read during winter, so please bring suggestions for books that would make good Hadassah discussion! For questions, contact Dana Wallen, Chair of the Hadassah Readers’ Circle, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 504-259-5656.
