A Tale of Two Souls - Learn the Tanya Through These Outstanding Audio Lessons


The Tanya was written by the great Chasidic master Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi in the late eighteenth century. The Tanya is considered to be one of the most extraordinary books of moral teachings ever written. A seminal document in the study of Kabbalah, the Tanya explores and solves the dilemmas of the human soul by arriving at the root causes of its struggles. Though it is a classic Jewish spiritual text, the Tanya and its present commentary take a broad and comprehensive approach that is not specific to Judaism nor tied to a particular personality type or time or point of view.

A battle of two souls is a constant for the "average" person. The Tanya explores the difficulties encountered of the "average" man striving for G-dliness, striving to cleave to the Creator of the world, while at the same time being constantly attacked by the animal soul wanting to dominate and rule over the "city" - the body.

These lessons are in audio, which means you can listen to them at your leisure without the need to concentrate on a text. They are guaranteed to inspire you and make you aware of the reality of being a person with ordinary material needs - aspiring for nothing less than total cleaving to G-d.

These Shiurim are given by Rabbi YY Jacobson. If you'd like to learn privately (not these audio Shiurim) you can schedule private lessons together with Rav Eliyahu (on Skype or in person) and learn together, discussing the realities of life, the thirst for G-dliness and the constant challenge of having to live in a material world.
