Paragraph 1    The R. Shlomo Zalman Havlin (1877-1936) copy with his handwritten notes on initial [10] ff. R. Havlin was the emissary of the Rashab to establish and operate a Habad yeshiva in Erez Israel. He initially founded Yeshiva Torat Emet in Hebron and subsequently moved it to Jerusalem.
   Hasidic homilies delivered during the year 5666 by R. Shalom Dov Bear Schneersohn (Rashab; 1860 - 1920), the fifth Rebbe of the Habad Lubavitch Hasidic Judaism movement. He is also known as "The rebbe Rashab" the acrostic of his name. Rashab was the son of R. Samuel Schneersohn, the fourth Habad Rebbe, and the father of the sixth Habad Rebbe, R. Joseph Isaac Schneersohn. He is noted for establishing the first Hasidic yeshiva, Tomchei Temimim. He was a prominent opponent of secular Zionism, and broke with the Agudat Israel organization.

The 5666 homilies are highly esteemed by Habad disciples and are considered to contain special revelations. The Rashab linked his homilies with the end of the exile predicted for that year. The volume does not include the final discourse for 5666 in the printed editions. Also contains assorted discourses for the years 1893-99.
