Friday Tanya Class

Delve into one of the greatest Jewish books of modern times Tanya by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi.

The Tanya compacts four millenia of Jewish wisdom to answer the great personal and existential questions of life and revolutionized the way we think about G‑d, the human soul, the world and our place in it. Understand the complexities, doubts and drives within us are an expression of a single basic problem: the struggle between our G‑dly Soul and our Animal Soul. Also known as the Sefer shel Benonim, the work teaches how we can elevate our souls to ever higher levels of self-awareness and understanding.
