Likkutei Dibburim: An Anthology of Talks Hardcover
Likkutei Dibburim, a cherished treasure-chest of the Chabad-Lubavitch heritage, is a record of talks delivered (and then rewritten for publication) by the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneesohn N"E (1880 - 1950), in Latvia, Poland and the United States, in the course of the years 1929-1950.
The sheer range of this work, both in subject and atmosphere, is overwhelming, for these talks embrace (for example) childhood memories; insightful stories; the family traditions of a family of tzaddikim; recollections of Stalinist dungeons and interrogations; nostalgic glimpses of faces and sounds and townlets that conjure up the mystique of a vanished world; delicately drawn vignettes of exalted villagers and humble giants; eloquent sometimes impassioned passages of exhortation; fascinating chronicles of the early history of the chassidic movement, treasured heirlooms that are lovingly passed on; and, of course, creative and instructive expositions of concepts crucial to the teachings of chassidus. But one theme links all of these subjects like a thread of gold - the intense spiritual and personal bond with all his fellow Jews, that is of the essence of the very concept of Rebbe.
