Product Description

Toward a Meaningful Life is a spiritual road map for living based on the teachings of one of the foremost religious leaders of our time: Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Recognized throughout the world simply as “the Rebbe,” Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who passed away in June 1994, was a sage and visionary of the highest order

Toward a Meaningful Life offers every individual — regardless of background — fresh perspectives on every aspect of life; from birth to death, youth to old age; marriage, love, intimacy, and family; the persistent issues of career, health, pain, and suffering; and education, faith and science. These perspectives empower us to bridge the divisions between accelerated technology and decelerated morality, between unprecedented worldwide unity and unparalleled personal disunity.

At the threshold of a new world where matter and spirit converge, the Rebbe proposes spiritual principles that unite people as opposed to the materialism that divides them.

    Even if you aren’t Lubavitch this book is a great read. Very spiritually moving and easy to read.

    The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson’s wisdom, foresight and teachings are truly a blessing to humanity. Finally a palapable compendium filled with thousands of teachings. Each word is truly a gem.

    I regard R. Simon Jacobson’s popularization of the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe as an excellent book, and would recommend it to persons of any or no formal religious belief. The second edition, with citations of sources, is an improvement; but should be followed by an electronic edition giving hyperlinks to those sources, both in traditional Jewish texts and in the verbatim transcriptions, in English or English translation with glossary, of the talks of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

    A tremendous body of work, both illuminating and thought provoking. Rabbi Jacobson delivers a profoundly deep and purposeful manual for meaningful existence in a cogent, easy to read package. I recommend it wholeheartedly to persons of all religious backgrounds.

    An excellent book for all people. It is simple, uncomplicated, and gets to the point. I really enjoyed the way this books presents Judaism to people like ‘me’. No camels, no rocking back and forth, no goats. Simply put this book teaches you to be nice, act kindly, and try to find Godliness in everything you do, all the time. I really hope you’ll read this book.

    This was by far the most life-changing book I’ve ever read. It put to words so many things I’ve felt in life. The lessons I learned from this book have inspired me and informed my life on a daily basis.

    Rabbi Schneerson was a very wise man and for anyone seeking guidance in a chaotic world, they will find straightforward and time-tested values here.

    This is not only a good read but a great resource to go back to when you are looking for another perspective to what is going on in your life and how to change your paradigm. It really is about living your purpose.

  10. 5 out of 5


    It is exactly what the title says. It gives you insight in how to lead a more meaningful life. It is for everyone not just Jews. You may not agree with some of it but it will get you thinking. And there is so much you will agree with. It is well worth the investment in time and money.

    My husband and I run a monumental masonry business and we give out many copies of your book Towards a Meaningful Life to families we assist. The reason we have chosen your book to be our gift to families is because of the wonderful sections on ageing and death which offer meaning and support during the difficult period of losing a loved one.
