Rabbi Shmuel Klatzkin

“The job of a Rebbe is to bring souls to Torah, not to win arguments.”

This was the response Dr. Shmuel Klatzkin received from the Rebbe as to why he did not address the philosophical challenges that were posed to him. This message touched him deeply and has shaped his understanding of Jewish unity.

In this moving lecture, Dr. Klatzkin reflects on his journey through the various sects of Judaism and his struggle between his Reform upbringing and the religious lifestyle he gradually became attracted to. He describes his personal correspondence with the Rebbe and how the Rebbe’s global vision allowed him to see the G-dly essence of person.The Rebbe demonstrated the ability to see past any external divisions and identify how each person plays a part in a cosmic plan.
