One who contributes from his wealth for the purpose of writing or publishing a sefer of a Tzaddik –
Behold, at any given time, and in any corner of the world, that a person studies from this sefer, the Tzaddik [on high] evokes merit on behalf of the donor through whom the sefer was disseminated.
—The Rebbe, Igrot Kodesh, vol 2
Lubavitcher Rebben's Zichronot
By Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn
In this veritable treasure chest of Chasidic learning and lore, Rabbi Yosef Y. Schneersohn, sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, takes us back to the Eastern Europe of three centuries ago, where we follow closely behind a young man named Baruch, who would later become the father of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, founder of the Chabad branch of Chasidism. Baruch, orphaned at a young age, wanders in search of a suitable manner in which to serve G-d.
At times, we witness incidents that occur in Baruch’s own life; at others, we join him in listening to captivating stories and historical episodes told to him by a variety of personalities. Both of these experiences serve as inspiration to young Baruch.
This revised edition of Lubavitcher Rebben’s Zichronos, reset in a fresh, easy-to-read typeface, will enable a new generation of Yiddish readers to enjoy these captivating tales, which warm the heart, stir the spirit, and inspire the soul.
