Practical Spirituality for Everyday Life 
Wednesday Evenings 8:00pm

 Written by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the book Tanya is the fundamental, classic work of Chabad Chassidic philosophy. More importantly, it offers guidance for every faced 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 Prauge 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 allusive, Talmudic, Kabbalistic, and Scriptural verses and concepts. It will be fascinating for expert and novice alike and no prior background knowledge is necessary.
