Edits made by the Rebbe in the margins of his personal Tanya were uncovered and published in the latest issue of Oholei Torah’s Ha’aros U’biurim.
The Rebbe added the annotations to a Tanya printed in Brooklyn in 5715, print number 52 in the list of Tanya printings. The Tanya was in the Rebbe’s possession until 5746, and it was during that time that he added the marginal notes.
Rabbi Chaim Shaul Brook, director of Lahak Hanachos, discovered the Tanya recently and uncovered the notes made by the Rebbe.
Most of the edits are in Igeres Hakodesh Siman Hey, and are based on another version of that letter of the Alter Rebbe which appeared in a “ksav yad in Eretz Hakodesh.” The Rebbe also added and edited the indexes at the end of Tanya, which were authored by the Rebbe.
Rabbi Brook published a list of the edits in the most recent edition of Oholei Torah’s Ha’aros U’biurim along with photos of the original, handwritten edits.
