Biography of the Origins of Lubavitch Chabad
Would you listen to Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi again? Why?
Yes - Although I purchased the book to learn more about the Alter Rebbe, I found that the book was more about the origins of Lubavitch Chabad than the Rebbe himself. It gave me insights into the movement's struggles to survive in the early years.
Would you recommend Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes - It gives information about the Alter Rebbe, but more about the origins of Lubavitch Chabad.
What about Shlomo Zacks’s performance did you like?
The British accent was nice.
Any additional comments?
To re-emphasize my main point—to me this book was more about the origins of Lubavitch Chabad, than the Alter Rebbe himself. Yes, it gave information about his childhood, etc., but the main focus was on the struggle of the movement to survive in the face of a tremendous amount of opposition. I would have liked it to be more about the Alter Rebbe, like Telushkin's incredible work on the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe.
