    We have all studied the Tanya many times in the process of learning Chitas. One would imagine that after so many reviews, we would know it practically by heart. Yet, the fact is that most of us do not yet know the Tanya fluently.

    One of the greatest challenges that stands in the way of remembering the Tanya is piecing the daily segments together. Tanya is like a very long maamar, in which each section leads into the next. When only studying a short segment each day, we struggle to retain the flow from yesterday’s section, never mind reconstructing the build of the entire book.

    To this end, Tanya in a Nutshell a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of Tanya, so that you can grasp the basic outline of the sefer. Whether you are following the daily schedule of Chitas or another pattern, the synopsis offers a quick review and a general picture to assist in understanding the Tanya as a whole.

    In addition, they have included several short inspirational thoughts on each chapter, to help the reader apply the study to daily life.

    Since the study of Chassidus hastens the coming of Moshiach, it is our hope that the enhanced understanding of Tanya will usher in the coming of Moshiach, when the world will be filled with the knowledge of Hashem.

    1. Wow. Sounds like a really nice idea.


    2. I only have a few minutes before davening, should I better learn a few lines of a Mamar / Tanya, or should I use something like this Tanya in a Nutshell?

      To clarify: Is it better / holier to learn from the original wording of a Rebbe, or is it better to understand more (chabad) like using a synopsis of the original material?

      Thank you.

      Just wondering...
