HASH(0x8db66bac) out of 5 stars The Best English Version of Sichos I've ever studied 3 Jan. 2011
By D. L. Lederman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I purchased this book (in an earlier printing) over 20 years ago, and I still find it a wonderful resource for learning Sichos (spoken essays which provide insights into the 5 books of Moses, more or less). I find Rabbi Sacks translations to be quite precise, something which can be very difficult when translating in general and extremely so when translating from Yiddish, Hebrew and Aramaic.

Sichos discuss a question posited by the Lubavitcher Rebbe; then they weave in and out of the widely varied and extensive canon of Torah learning. One sicha alone can include concepts and quotations from various sections of the Pentateuch, the Prophets, Writings, etc., the Code of Jewish Law, the Talmud, the Zohar (REAL kabala) and prior Chassidic teachings and commentaries.

Sacks is able to follow this train of reasoning in a clear manner so that the reader, no matter their amount of Torah learning, can keep up with the pace and logic.

It can be difficult for people who have an educational background in Yiddish and Hebrew to publish material which meets the editorial standard most of us expect when reading scholarly material. The format for the English language is so divergent from that of the traditional Jewish languages that it can create literature with irregular spelling, punctuation and word usage. Unfortunately, a reader unfamiliar with this type of translation can erroneously form the impression that the writer is poorly educated - often leading to a cursory reading of the subject matter which can result in the belief that Torah studies are simplistic and childlike (G-d forbid).

It is with relief that I can state that this book has been thoroughly edited for the English language. The fantastic use of language, punctuation, etc. in Torah Studies manages to bring out the beauty of these studies.

Giving credit to one's sources is something that the Rebbe always emphasized, and the notes and bibliography provide access to further study if desired.

I find that this book is especially helpful for discussion either at the Shabbos meals or as the text for an informal learning session.

I realize that this review will be posted under "Kindle Books." While it might be nice to keep this book on Kindle for every day inspiration, the Kindle version has a distinct drawback in that it cannot be used on Shabbos or holidays. Therefore, I would only buy the Kindle edition as a back-up version which could be used for learning Torah when traveling, at work, waiting for appointments, on the train, etc. But it would be VERY useful for those situations.

HASH(0x8d7da8a0) out of 5 stars brings clarity and deeper meaning to the Torah 19 Feb. 2012
By sandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read numerous books that attempt to solve some of the mysteries of the Torah. This is a wonderful book that helps bring much needed (in my case anyway) insight into the Torah. It is a treasure that I will reread over and over. I expect that I will be further enlightened with each reading.

HASH(0x8db95a20) out of 5 stars Get Some Good Chasidic Thought 3 Sept. 2014
By Eric Maroney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Torah studies are a series of talks/writings, from the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, and span the topics of each week’s Torah portions, selectively provided.

This book is not for the Torah beginner. Despite being edited for content to appeal to a wider audience, it still has distinctly upper level spiritual concerns, and even with the excellent introductions and notes, the meaning of these essays can be opaque.

But for the reader who wants a bit of Chasidic teaching, relatively unfiltered, and is not shy about working with the text, this is an engaging and fascinating read.

The Rebbe has a simple message despite the complexity of the presentation. God is everywhere, and it is the duty of every Jew to find God and see the manifest presence of God in this world.

HASH(0x8d9b7c54) out of 5 stars An Outstanding Book 18 Feb. 2015
By Richard A Vail - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book almost 20 years ago when I was in a very difficult period of my life. The insights of the last Lubavitcher Rebbe are...priceless. It confirmed for me that the the path I had barely begun was the right one for me. I strongly suggest this book for anyone who is struggling with life and needs some direction.
