Those who never yielded: The history of the Chassidic rebel movement in the ghettoes of German-occupied Poland
Non-violent non-cooperation with the Nazis in WWII
I'm giving this book 5 stars for content, even though there are some technical problems with the writing (we'll get to those later.) This was one of the first collections of first-hand testimonies about Hasidic non-violent resistance to the Nazis to come out in English, and that gives it important historical significance. Published in 1980, the people interviewed were already old back then, and ...

Fathers and sons: The chassidic masters on Pirkei Avos
Distributed by Feldheim Publishers
Tuvia Kaplan teaches the Hasidic masters on Avot
This is a wonderful little sefer. Tuvia Kaplan collects teaching of Chassidic masters on the Mishnayot of Avot. He does this in a way which deepens the moral meaning of the text. Examples: Chapter 4 Mishnah 6 Rabbi Yose said: He who honors Torah is honored by others, but he who dishonors the Torah is dishonored by others. One who loves and values Torah willlearn even from someone of ...
Extraordinary Chassidic Tales: Volume 2
Rafael Nachman Kahn
Otsar Sifrei Lubavitch
Pleasant and Excellent
I have only read part of this book, through the stories of the Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi. The stories are well written and offer insight into the Chabad outlook on G-d, Torah, and the World and their interaction. At least for me, the stories are fun and pleasant to read and learn. The author was apparently known for his abilities in the world of stories and was requested by ...

Y. A Korff
Misguided and Misinformed
I wish the good Rebbe would have stuck to writing a strictly historical book. Instead, we have to endure what he thinks are his great pearls of wisdom and insight. The few "revelations" he shares that aren't regurgitated chestnuts, are strange pronouncents. Bombast and chutzpah are not enough to write a good book. They say you should write what you know. Good advice, that the good Rebbe should ...

Sichos in English
A must read for all Jews!
This great, easy to read book gives true life stories of the works of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, Melech HaMoshiach. The indoviduals relating their stories often give their own names and dates. Reading this book has made me emotional more than once. One really begins to understand who was and is the Rebbe to all of Klal Yisroel. May we merit the ultimate redemption ...
