A GROUNDBREAKING NEW WORK ON THE REBBE'S TEACHINGS
Mishnat Menachem on the Talmudic Sages is now on the shelves of leading Jewish bookshops. It summarizes and organizes all the Rebbe’s teachings regarding the personalities of the Talmud, Medrash and Zohar into one unique, user-friendly and useful reference work.
In over 1000 pages, close to 200 of the outstanding personalities and places of the Talmudic period come to life. The Rebbe’s descriptions of the insightful teachings, intellectual profiles, individual spiritual nature and significant events in their lives are presented systematically. The historical background, teachers, colleagues, students and noteworthy qualities of each personality are also provided. This is prefaced by an extensive outline of the Rebbe’s revolutionary approach to “learning”.
The highlights of the Rebbe’s father, Reb Levi Yitzchok’s Kabbalistic descriptions of hundreds of people and places of the Talmud, Medrash and Zohar are also summarized in understandable terms.
According to the compiler, Rabbi Pesach Fishman, a veteran Shliach, communal rabbi and educator in South Africa, “Anthologies that span all of the Rebbe’s talks on Rashi on Chumash, Rambam and Pirkei Avos have long existed. This work addresses the need for an all-encompassing anthology on the people and places of the Talmud, Medrash and Zohar. Both the seasoned Rosh Yeshiva and the beginner will be able to easily find the Rebbe’s teachings on the guiding principles that characterized the lives of these pillars of the Torah She’baal Peh. Importantly, it will assist them in utilizing the Rebbe’s approach in gaining new insight and deeper understanding of every major personality of those times and their teachings”.
Mishnat Menachem, which is in Hebrew, is designed to be used as a reference tool regardless of which mesechta of the Talmud or Medrash one is studying and is thoroughly indexed and fully footnoted for those who would like to delve deeper. It is a highly useful tool for easily and quickly preparing shiurim which are a combination of Nigleh and the Rebbe’s Chassidus.
Mishnat Menachem has the endorsement and encouragement of a wide range of prominent Rabbonim. Among these are (in alphabetical order): Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg, Rabbi Ze’ev Goldstein, Rabbi Yochanan Gurary and Rabbi YY Yeruslavski.
