Second Printing—Soft Cover
The “creative literary” style of this book, is designed to convey
the core principles of Chassidic philosophy in a most palatable
user friendly fashion, and to underscore their current relevance.

What Chabad Really Believes pioneers a new genre with its creative literary style on Chabad Chassidic philosophy.

Kabbalah based Chassidism is a portal to the soul of the world, allowing us a view into the mysteries of creation and its ontology, as well as the inner workings of the human psyche.

Penned as a dialogue between two friends, Danni and Jay, the narrative takes on a dynamic story-line, infused with animated interaction, banter and humor. This occurs as Danni, the more knowledgeable of the two, shares Chassidic insights with his disenfranchised friend, Jay during a flight to Poland on a Federation Mission.

Praise for What Chabad Really Believes

The esoteric mysteries of Kabbalstic and Chassidic teachings remain mostly locked away in books and language inaccessible to most. Chabad especially is shrouded in many stereotypes and even controversy.

In What Chabad Really Believes, Rabbi Yoseph Kahanov offers us a tremendous gift: He opens up this unknown world in crystal clear terms, and presents us with a comprehensive, yet utterly personally relevant blueprint for life—engaging to readers of all backgrounds.

— Simon Jacobson, author Toward a Meaningful Life

I highly recommend this book to anyone who seeks an understanding of Chabad’s thought, philosophy and practical application to life. Written with a great skill appropriate to the general public this book is very accessible while comprehensive.

The method of delving into very sophisticated concepts through a personal interactive conversation lends itself to easy reading and relevance. I am impressed with the author’s wisdom and ability to introduce deep philosophical ideas in a manner so understandable it actually resonates with one’s life experience.
