Every morning, thousands of people around the world from Crown Heights to Lakewood to Monroe to Yerushalayim, wake up to Let’s Talk Tanya, a short daily series taught by Rabbi Naftali Silberberg.
Every morning, thousands of people around the world—from Crown Heights to Lakewood to Monroe to Yerushalayim—wake up to Let’s Talk Tanya, a daily series that debuted on Yud Tes Kislev.
Available in both audio and video, the series is taught by Rabbi Naftali Silberberg, codirector of JLI’s curriculum department and acclaimed Tanya teacher. Every day features a 3–5 concise presentation of the basic idea of the day’s Tanya in clear and relevant language and contextualizes the day’s segment in the larger structure of Tanya. The series is enjoyed by many who are well-versed in Tanya, by mekuravim with minimal background knowledge—and all those in between.
The feedback has been tremendous:
Mrs. Chana Sorah Danow of Chabad at Leeds Campus, England, writes: “Thanks for your fantastic podcast. There’s been amazing feedback from everyone who has listened so far—from my university students to Lubavitcher women. It’s really just what’s needed to make Tanya practical and applicable. I have learned and taught Tanya for so many years and I am really enjoying the words this is giving me to understand both for myself and to give over to others.”
Rabbi Nochum Kurinsky, shliach to Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., writes: “I listen to Let’s Talk Tanya every morning; it’s five minutes, but it gives me perspective for the day. As a shliach, it gives me a message to think about, and I try to convey at least one point from the day’s Tanya to the people I see throughout the day.”
Mrs. Sarah Sacks of Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel, explains: “I had pretty much written off the Tanya. It felt unrelatable to me until I heard Rabbi Silberberg’s Tanya classes. Now it’s very related to me! Let’s Talk Tanya has been a binah bridge for me to the chochmah of Tanya.”
This Wednesday, the 4th of Sivan, we begin Shaar Hayichud Veha’emunah, the second part of Tanya, whose topic is G-d’s unity. What does it mean that G-d is One? Why is that belief so important? And what are its implications? Join Let’s Talk Tanya to get the answers to these questions—one day at a time.
Let’s Talk Tanya is available on YouTube and all Podcasting platforms. You can also join the Let’s Talk Tanya WhatsApp community (it’s anonymous, no one else sees your name or number) and receive the segment daily.
