Leadership issues are subject to much discussion and interest yet too little is known of their internal dynamics. Leadership and succession of authority has been a constant theme in Jewish literature and life from biblical days until today. The present work studies questions relating to authority in general and hasidic authority in particular. It uses the various HaBaD hasidic dynasties as a case study to illustrate how authority was transferred from one generation to another and how a leader emerges as a leader despite opposition. The rise to eminence of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson is the third major subject discussed therein. He is the focus of careful analysis. Through such illustrations, leadership characteristics peculiar to that movement as well as general leadership theory are better understood. In this work, leadership criteria are analyzed and discussed to properly ascertain what brought one person to a position of supreme leadership and what brought another to become a subordinate.

This is one of the worst books I've ever read. Ehrlich spent a bit of time in Chabad, so he thinks he knows everything, setting forth a wholesale revision of Chabad's history. Unfortunately for Ehrlich, he doesn't have a clue. He cites a tiny fragment of the documentary evidence in the public record and then proceeds to completely misinterpret it. Lucky for him, the academic world knows little to nothing of Chabad history (as opposed to Chabad philosophy, which is the subject of dozens if not hundreds of scholarly studies), so he can get away with his shoddy methodology. Waste of time.

This is a critical, even-handed, scholarly and historical review of leadership in Chabad from the very start of the movement to present era. It not only traces the lines of inheritance that are recognized in most branches of Lubavitch today, but it also examines those leaders who are now viewed as challengers to the throne, usurpers or illegitimate heirs. Almost anybody who led a significant number of Jews who viewed the Tanya as the critical outline of their beliefs is scrutinized.

The book brings to light certain legends, beliefs and mythologies that are guarded by Lubavitchers and usually only shared with those who are firmly within the fold.

The major problem is that it categorizes the other Chassidic movements and other Jewish movements in general in the same manner that Lubavitchers do. The author bought into their line of reasoning far too fully and far too quickly. It is far too common, among Chassidic movements, for people to develop some sort of rationalization for why one's own branch of Chassidism is superior to one's neighbor's branch. Lubavitchers surpassed almost every other movement in doing this.

The divisions of Chabad and Chagas are almost entirely artificial and have no place in a scholarly work, except to explore how these oddities came about and to what ends they were used and for what purpose they were intended. The terms themselves do nothing to define the adherents to a Chassidic movement nor to describe the nature of the movement itself.

Despite this, the purpose of the book is to examine Lubavitch itself, and this the book does well. I would not rely on it to get a feeling for other movements within Judaism, but it teases a great deal of information out of what has become the most controversial movement in Jewish world since Shabbati Zvi and Nathan of Gaza set out to make names for themselves.

In defining a movement, there are few things more important than defining its leadership. No other book does this quite so well when it comes to Lubavitch. As such, this is a critical piece of scholarship for anyone desiring to understand what is going on today in Lubavitch.

Avrum Ehrlich has done a great service. For the first time, the actual facts of succession in the Chabad-Lubavitch movement have been made available to English-speaking readers. Ehrlich notes what other historians have also noted - that Chabad sources cannot be taken at face value and that many Chabad sources are agenda-driven, not fact-driven. (See an extensive discussion of this in Bryan Mark Rigg's wonderful book, "Rescued From The Reich," Yale University Press, 2004.)

I write this brief review on the 55th anniversary of the passing of the previous leader of Chabad-Lubavitch, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn. Chabad sources mark today as the beginning of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson's leadership of the movement, even though he did not become leader until one year after the Rabbi Y.Y. Schneersohn passed away. Chabad traditionally attributes this one-year gap as a demonstration of Rabbi M.M. Schneerson's supposed 'reluctance' to take the job. However, Ehrlich convincing proves that a one-year struggle for succession took place between Rabbi M.M. Schneerson and Rabbi Shmaryahu Gourary, and that Rabbi M. M. Schneerson actively campaigned for the job. Until Ehrlich's book was published, Chabad rarely (if ever) mentioned that struggle.

While Ehrlich's book can be at times overly technical and a bit leaden, it is nonetheless the most important work on the history of Chabad yet written.

Highly recommended.

This is a good book for people who want to learn the facts about how the leadership of Chabad evolved and developed over time. It outlines the significant contributions of the Rabbis, and the origins of the movement.

The style is very mechanical, and reads like a doctoral thesis, which is what it probably is. It is a very, very dry read, but a good reference book.

There is almost no mention of any impact women made on their community or their husband Rabbis, but perhaps that is just the way it goes in Chabad.

Umdwyn
Ehrlich seems to be another guy who has an aganda and is trying to make himself popular, while having no REAL TRUE insight into what go's on in the CHabad Movment.
