  • $500.00

Likutei Amarim, with the Iggeret Teshuva and Iggeret Hakodesh. Authored by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi. Printed in Tel Aviv in 1943 as printed in Vilna during the war. [2], 2-163. 5 and 1/4 Inch. Extremely rare, in addition this may be the first of the 2 slightly different variants of that year, as this one seems to have been printed by Pihas Altheus without permission or at least a mention of the Chabad organization. The other one I have seendeclares on the title page that it' was published by Agudat Chassidei Chabad Haolamit but brought to the printer by Altheus'. Comes with original covers and binding. Nice condition.

Shneur Zalman of Liady  1745 – 1812, was an Orthodox rabbi and the founder and first Rebbe of Chabad Lubavitch, a branch of Hasidic Judaism, then based in Liadi in the Russian Empire. He was the author of many works, and is best known for Shulchan Aruch HaRav, Tanya and his Siddur Torah, compiled according to the Nusach Ari.

He is also known as the "Baal HaTanya" (Author of the book Tanya), and by a variety of other names including "Shneur Zalman Baruchovitch," Baruchovitch being the Russian patronymic from his father Baruch, by the acronym "RaShaZ" (רש"ז‬), by the title "Baal HaTanya ve-haShulchan Aruch'" (Author of the Tanya and the Shulchan Aruch), as the "Alter Rebbe" ("Old Rebbe" in Yiddish), "Admor HaZaken" ("Old Rebbe" in Hebrew), "Rabbenu HaZaken", "Rabbenu HaGadol", "our great rabbi", the "GRaZ", and the "Rav".
