Who wouldn’t want an instant—and now electronically accessible—snippet of invaluable wisdom?
Daily Wisdom, an anthology of 378 daily inspirational lessons culled from the vast and deep Torah teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe—Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory—is the latest addition to the Chabad.org’s “Daily Study” section, one of the most popular sections of the website.
The lessons in Daily Wisdom are apportioned according to the day-to-day study cycle of the Torah’s weekly portion. The teachings were adapted into English by Rabbi MosheWisnefsky and produced in book form by Chabad House Publications of California. It was published by Kehot Publication Society in July of 2014.
Following the book’s initial success, it was republished in a compact format as the AsherDavid Milstein Edition. It became the gold winner in the religion category of the prestigious 2015 Benjamin Franklin Awards a few months later.
In addition to being fully accessible online atTheRebbe.org, the teachings have also been incorporated into Chabad.org’s “Hayom” app, which brings together halachic times, daily study, inspiration, yarhtzeits and Hebrew birthdays for an all-inclusive Chabad.org app experience.
Subscribers also can receive each day’s wisdom in their inbox every day (except for Shabbat and Jewish holidays) by signing up for a special daily email. To subscribe to the daily mailing click here.
The teachings are intended to serve as a companion to the full text of the daily portion of the Torah, which is customarily studied along with Rashi’s classic commentary. In addition, each teaching is preceded by a brief summary of the day’s Torah portion.
“The Rebbe’s inspirational teachings are a relevant and living source of insight and comfort,” noted Rabbi Chaim Nochum Cunin, director of Chabad House Publications. “Daily Wisdom is a vehicle through which thousands of people are now being personally impacted by these teachings. Having them on the web makes this inspiration that much more accessible to all.”
