In connection with Chof Menachem Av, the yohrtzeit – Hilulo of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok Schneersohn, the Rebbe’s beloved and revered father, Yagdil Torah compiled a kuntres with Sichos Kodesh, excerpts from Rabbi Levi Yitzchok’s Torah and Mishnayos to be learned on the yohrtzeit.
In the preface to their kuntres, the Yagdil Torah editors write: In connection with Chof Menachem Av, the Hilulah of the Rebbe’s father, R’ Levi Yitzchak Schneerson OB”M, we present this collection of short teachings from his works.
On this day, all of his works shine down from above. It is our duty to learn from his ways. Therefore, we have printed a few sichos from the Rebbe about his father’s devotion to studying and spreading Torah.
May it be Hashem’s will that this will have the intended effect and will strengthen us to keep our set times for Torah study and to increase them.”
As part of Yagdil Torah’s goal to make Torah learning easily accessible to all segments
of the community, we are publishing a unique learning guide in honor of Chof Av,
the Yom Hilula of R’ Levi Yitzchok. Specially selected portions of Likutei Levi
Yitzchok have been translated into English.These will accompany the original Hebrew
text, mishnayos corresponding to his name and other interesting material in a beautiful
booklet that pays tribute to the life and teachings of R’ Levi Yitzchok.
We have these teachings thanks to the incredible mesirus nefesh of his wife, Rebbetzin
Chana. Learning these novel insights into Torah will not only be a zechus for his
neshomo, but will surely bring tremendous nachas to the Rebbe.
Additionally, Chabad of the Ukraine has translated our publication for the use of
the local Russian- reading population.
All three versions of the Chof Av publications will be available in shuls, at the
Heichal Halimmud, and on our website.
For those needing only the mishnayos corresponding to R’ Levi Yitzchok’s entire
name, we have that too!
