The Long Shorter Way is a major interpretation and exploration of Chasidism, based on a series of lectures delivered by Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz on Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi's classic Chasidic work, the Tanya. Like the Tanya itself, The Long Shorter Way focuses on the profound dilemma of the beinoni, the intermediate person who, neither purely wicked nor purely good, must struggle with evil and temptation throughout his or her life. In each chapter, Rabbi Steinsaltz elucidates the complex nature of man as he strives to attain unity with the Divine One, compelling the reader to deep personal inspection.
