Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “The difficult question.”

The book, Tanya asks the difficult questions.

What are the basic qualities within people?

How do I change?

How do I deal with other people’s failings?

Ironically, the Tanya deals with human concepts rather than ritual ones, how you understand yourself and others.

Ultimately, you have a better notion of what G-d expects from you.

It’s not the image of the old man with or without a beard, sitting in heaven and dispensing candy to the good boys and beating the bad ones.

You get a grown up version.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
