(p. 507)

Last month’s book, The Weight of Ink, keeps winning more awards. Thanks for all the kudos from our members who attended this discussion. It was special!

Our reading this month, in the midst of our holidays, portrays the life of the late Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. With Joseph Telushkin’s perspective, Rabbi Allouche’s leadership in our discussion and our group’s in-depth insights, what more can we ask? One thing: come prepared to name one thought/idea you learned or related to from your reading of Rebbe, the Life and Teachings of Menachem M. Schneerson, the Most Influential Rabbi in Modern History by Joseph Telushkin.

As a prequel to our discussion you might like to follow this link to a recent blog in the Times of Israel by Rabbi Allouche, “Four Life Perspectives The Rebbe Taught Us”:  http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/four-life-perspectives-the-rebbe-taught-us/
