This immersive journey explores the extensive wisdom and guidance of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of blessed memory.

This course will offer a learning and multimedia voyage through the Rebbe’s insights on daily life. Discover how the Rebbe applied Jewish values to serve as a guide for finding deeper meaning in everyday life.

The six-week course will explore the following six key areas of life: money and career, family and home, physical health and well-being, emotional health, challenge and adversity, and spiritual growth.
