• A Chassidic View On The Three Biographies

    As summer rolled around Chabad Chassidim were greeted with three new books purporting to portray the Rebbe: “My Rebbe” by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, “Rebbe” by Joseph Telushkin and “Turning Judaism Outward” by Chaim Miller ● Alas, all three took the route of rewriting history, omitting facts, and plain ignorance of the Rebbe’s life mission: the coming of Moshiach ● A Chabad Chossid has taken upon himself the task of correcting these books ● Read More

    2. Very nicely written. When I first read through these books I was quite disturbed at the glaring lack of the main subject of the Rebbe MHM’s leadership, Moshiach. It’s like writing a biography of Einstein and barely glancing over his Theory of Relativity. But what we must keep in mind is what the Rebbe MHM said himself in Parshas Ki Sisa in Nun Beis, that everyone in the generation is connected to the Moshe of the generation. The question is to what part? The legs, body, head or Keter? Telushkin’s book clearly reflects his connection to the Rebbe (legs or body), and for Miller and Steinsaltz their connections are to the Rebbe’s head. So instead of the time and energy being spent to point out the shortcomings of their apparent connection to our king, why not write your own book from the perspective of a Chassid that is connected to the Rebbe MHM’s Keter?
