Description: Until now, the private life of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson - particularly his childhood and youth - has been shrouded in mystery. For the first time, the Rebbe's early life is explored in The Early Years. Based on first-person testimony from the oral history project, My Encounter with the Rebbe: The Early Years sheds unprecedented light on the Rebbe's formative years.
From his childhood studies at Cheder, to his correspondence with Torah giants, his work in the office of his eventual father-in-law, the sixth Rebbe, his flight from the Soviet government and his studies at the University of Berlin, The Early Years: Volume One takes you into the fascinating life of one of the foremost Jewish leaders of modern times.
