Likutei Torah, four parts, Chassidic essays on the books of Vayikra-Devarim, the festivals and Shir HaShirim, by Rebbe Shneur Zalman of Liadi – the Baal HaTanya. Zhitomir: R. Chanina Lipa, R. Aryeh Leib and R. Yehoshua Heshel Shapira, grandsons of the Rabbi of Slavita, 1848. First edition.
All four parts in one volume. Divisional title page for each part.
Hosafot LeSefer Likutei Torah is bound at the end of the book, with approbations to Likutei Torah, an essay which had been omitted, additions and errata. Zhitomir, 1851.
The book Likutei Torah contains homilies which the Baal HaTanya delivered to the public on Shabbat and festivals, as well as commentaries which he gave over to his sons and select disciples during the course of the week, to clarify what he had said in the Shabbat sermon. The homilies mostly deal with the Chassidic approach to worship of G-d, while the commentaries explain and simplify kabbalistic concepts, based on Chassidic teachings.
The book was written and arranged by the grandson and close disciple of the Baal HaTanya, the Tzemach Tzedek.
Likutei Torah is considered one of the most important and fundamental books in Chabad Chassidic thought.
