The class is free of charge, but students will need Volume 1 of "Lessons in Tanya" (also available for purchase at Chabad Jewish Center). 

Written by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the book of Tanya is the fundamental, classic work of Chabad Chasidic philosophy. More importantly, it offers guidance for every facet of day-to-day life. While based on the kabbalistic works of the Zohar, writings of Rabbi Isaac Luria (Arizal), Baal Shem Tov, Maharal of Prague and others - its unique approach of distilling the cryptic messages of mysticism has won it acclaim as a most practical book of spirituality for layman and scholar alike.

This class will lead the student through every paragraph and page, illuminating the mystical, often elusive, Talmudic, Kabbalistic, and Scriptural verses and concepts. It will be fascinating for expert and novice alike and no prior background knowledge is necessary.

Every day we must study Torah.
Each day you are new. Each morning you are born to life again. Do you not eat again each day as though you have never eaten before? Do you not thirst as though you have never drunk water?
Should we not study again each day to feed our minds and souls?
~ Based on the Talmud and the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneersohn
