Discussion on Rebbe’s Early Life

Rabbi Dr. Jacob Schacter led a discussion with authors of the book The Early Years at Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun in New York.

Over two hundred people gathered together on Monday at an event hosted by Kehillath Jeshurun in Manhattan to explore the life of the Rebbe.

With standing room only, the audience was treated to a spirited conversation with the authors of the new book, Early Years. The evening was led by Rabbi Dr. Jacob J Schachter of Yeshiva University, who presented his review of the book.

Rabbis Boruch Oberlander and Elkanah Shmotkin, co-authors of the book, offered fascinating new insight into the volume’s history, relating the experience of researching and authoring such a groundbreaking book. The panel answered questions from an engaged and enthusiastic audience.

Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz, senior rabbi of KJ, and Rabbi Bentzion Krasniansky offered opening remarks about the new work.

The book is published by Kehot Publication Society and is available at Jewish bookstores or online at

Early Years presents the unknown story of the Rebbe’s childhood and youth, through documents and archival data.
