The Book of Tanya

Friday, 5 July, 2019 - 2:14 pm

High school kids are going through tremendous changes. Physical growth, emotional growth, and cognitive growth. These new-found capabilities can make kids self-centered. They can be reluctant to learn subjects that don’t have any immediate, practical relevance. The Alter Rebbe spent 20 years giving guidance to his chassidim, and then compiled all of that advice into the Book of the Tanya. Its stated purpose is to help us internalize all of the teachings of the Torah to the point that we can fulfill the verse “for this Torah is very near to you, in your mouth and in your heart, to do it.”

Therefore, it’s the perfect book to teach to high school kids- practical, relevant advice for approaching all other holy books in a meaningful way.
