The family announced the beginning of the translation of his collection of chassidic stories and sayings published in Hebrew with the title “Likutei Sippurei Hisvaadus”.
The planned book in English will also include the translation of Reb Volf’s other work titled Lekutei Dinim, a guide to daily life originally written Yiddish. The book was edited by the Rebbe.
“Many have expressed fond memories of farbrengens with Rabbi Greenglass,” the family said. “Unfortunately, the Hebrew book is not accessible to the English-speaking public. We hope with your help, we will be able to complete the realization of this project and make this work available to everyone.”
