Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, father of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, was a profound Torah scholar who served as the rabbi of the Ukrainian city of Yekaterinoslav (now Dnepropetrovsk). He is said to have composed thousands of pages of original Torah thoughts and discourses. The bulk of these writings are considered lost during the tumultuous years of WWII, and extant today are only those he penned on the margins of the few books he had during his final years, while in exile in Chi’ili, in far-off Kazakhstan. More than a decade after R. Levi Yitzchak’s passing in Alma-Ata in 1944, these writings were brought to the United States, where they reached his illustrious son, the Lubavitcher Rebbe. In the 1970s, they were published in five volumes under the titles of Likkutei Levi Yitzchak and Torat Levi Yitzchak, and the Rebbe began regularly expounding on these terse glosses at his public addresses.
Comprising sixteen essays, the present work was adapted by Rabbi Eli Block from R. Levi Yitzchak’s original works as well as from the Rebbe’s elucidations.
