Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0873063538, Paperback)

This is a biography of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liady, "the Rav," known also as der alter rebbe and the ba'al ha-tanya - told in the form of a novel, but faithful to the authentic sources. Widely read in the original German, this masterful narrative by Naftali Hertz Ehrmann (Judaeus, the gifted author of The Baal Shem of Michelstadt) has been ably translated by Karen Paritzky, who made use of other (documentary) sources as well, to present in English the life of one of Jewry's most important religious leaders in the Diaspora.
