Turning Judaism Outward
How the Rebbe Changed the Jewish World


ChaimMiller3tammuz5778email.jpgAs world Jewry prepares to mark the 24th anniversary of the passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, two local Chabads are once again preparing a special event to honor his righteous memory.

Rabbi Chaim Miller, a noted scholar, prolific author and lecturer, is coming to town and will be speaking at The Tabacinic Chabad Center, 2280 Belleair Rd, Clearwater, FL 33764 on Monday, June 11th for an evening of tribute to the Rebbe.

A dessert reception will be held at 7:00 pm and the lecture will be at 7:30 pm.

The event is being sponsored by both Chabad of Clearwater and Chabad of Pinellas County.

Rabbi Miller is a leading international authority for interpretation of Jewish Bible and mysticism, specifically the Torah-related works of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. His scholarly achievement is substantiated by the vast dissemination of his works, as well as the acclaim they have won him among his colleagues and in the educational and religious communities in which the works circulate.

Born and raised in London, England, Miller studied at the prestigious Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Boys. He began to explore the depth of his religion while at England’s Leeds University through extensive reading and personal introspection. Fascinated by Jewish mystical teachings, he took a year off to learn at a Lubavitch yeshiva. Five years later he was an ordained rabbi practicing in Leeds, running both a synagogue and a yeshiva, and writing in his spare time what would soon become the Gutnick Chumash.

In 2004 Rabbi Miller relocated to the United States with the intention of devoting himself almost entirely to the writing and editing of great Jewish liturgy for Kol Menachem. Since this time, he has completed the two commentaries on the torah, a commentary on the Haggadah, the book of Psalms, Megillat Esther and two volumes exploring Rambam’s Thirteen Principles of Faith.

At the end of May 2014 he released “Turning Judaism Outwards” a 592-page-long biography on the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Miller’s most recent work is “The Practical Tanya” an astoundingly clear adaptation of the Tanya, one of the most influential works of Jewish spiritual thought ever written, penned by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi (1745-1812), the founder of the Chabad movement.

Rabbi Miller’s books can be found in tens of thousands of Jewish homes and Synagogues around the world and are currently used at some of the nation’s top institutions, including New York University and Yeshiva University. In addition, over a thousand Rabbis in the United States and beyond use Rabbi Miller’s texts to teach their students.

Rabbi Miller’s publications have received the attention of community leaders and various persons of note. In 2008, President George W. Bush sent the Slager Edition Haggadah to the troops in Iraq as a representation of the Jewish faith for the United States military. The Haggadah was a recent recipient of the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Award and Miller’s Gutnick Chumash is on display at the Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn, New York. Arthur Kurzweil, author of The Torah for Dummies as well as Kabbalah for Dummies singled out Rabbi Miller’s Gutnick Chumash and proclaimed, “If I could have only one translation on a desert island, it would be this one.”

In 2013, Rabbi Miller was chosen by The Jewish Press as one of sixty “Movers and Shakers” in the Jewish world.

He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife Chani and seven children.

Admission to the event is $10 per person, $18 per couple, $180 for co-sponsors and $360 for sponsors (Sponsors receive FREE copy of the book.) PLEASE SCROLL UP TO RSVP or CALL: 727-265-2770
