Prompted by the devastation wreaked on September 11 to again reflect on the challenges life presents, Jacobson has submitted a revised edition of his 1995 volume, which shares wisdom gleaned from his lifelong religious teacher and mentor, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, fondly known as the Rebbe to his Lubavitch followers and as a Torah luminary to Jews around the world.
Divided into three sections-Man, Society, and G-d-and including the addition of a new chapter, "Upheaval and Change," Jacobson offers readers spiritual nourishment to help them experience personal fulfillment and continual growth.
Each chapter begins with quotes from scripture and the Rebbe: "The world says that time is money; I say that time is life," the Rebbe opined, and "We are the seventh generation, the one that will actualize G-d's reality on this earth."
To best demonstrate the Rebbe's insights, Jacobson offers anecdotes that stress the importance and accessibility of each idea, as well as its ultimate reward.
Perceptive and thought-provoking, this compilation of the Rebbe's thoughts and themes can be as useful to the reader previously acquainted with the Rebbe and Torah thought as to the novice
