The Tanya Club

Practical Spirituality for Everyday Life


Each session, we will learn a theme from the Tanya. During each lesson we will develop, through discussion and study, an area where Tanya empowers us and also come away with one or two practical exercises to help us in our daily lives and in our relationships.

This class is free of charge, however prior registration is appreciated. Please be in touch with Rabbi Yossie Nemes @ 504-957-4986 or [email protected]All sessions take place at Chabad Jewish Center

The Book of Tanya is the basic and fundamental guide to Chassidic philosophy. It captures the deepest mystical concepts of Torah and translates them into a tangible, comprehensive and inspirational approach to serving God. It will be fascinating for expert and novice alike and no prior knowledge is necessary.
