New York Times Bestseller, Rebbe by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, tells the life and teachings of Menachem M. Schneerson, the most influential Rabbi in Modern History.

In the enlightening and authoritative biography, Rebbe, Telushkin offers a captivating portrait of the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneern, who defied conventional boundaries and turned his movement, Chabad-Lubavatich, into the most dynamic and widespread Jewish organization today.

Joseph Telushkin, named by Talk Magazine as one of the 50 best speakers in the United States, is the author of Jewish Literacy: The Most Important Things to Know About the Jewish Religion, Its People and Its History. The most widely selling book on Judaism of the past two decades, Jewish Literacy, has been hailed by leading figures in all the major movements of Judaism.
