A Very Important Analysis on Ayin Beis
The lecturer analysis and compares the different style ('signum' in our Lub parlance) of the Mittler Rebbe and Tzemach Tedek. He claims / suggests that R Reshab continues the style of the Mittler Rebbe rather than style of the Tzemach Tedek. Worthwile listening for anyone who wants a more acedemic analysis of the R Reshab''s style.

Rabbi Grunwald is Chabad's biggest secret. It would definitely be advantageous to have more of his talks online. This would without a doubt open the vast world of Chabad Chasidus to the masses. Personally, I was blown away from this Shiur. It is not only a rehash and collection of Chabad Chassidus, but gives a new prosprective and a fresh (and even exciting) understanding of the broader Chabad Chassidus - something I never heard before from any Mashpiah. His talk actually convinces me to open up the works of the Alter Rebbe, Mittler Rebbe, Tsemach Tsedek and Rashab and look at their writings with a new "pair of glasses". Now, my question is - how does the Rebbe fit into the picture? I am sure that Rabbi Grunwald has much to say on this subject.Please... more Shiurim!!!!!

Great lecture
This presentation put in context is absolutely professional and very informative, it seems like this was given as a lecture for complete outsiders who are academics, and for them this is a well put together analysis of the development and evolvement of Hasidic thought.

However for Anash and Chasidim the language is a little over the top and if I may say a little too 'grub', the lecturer should refine some of his expressions when he describes the Rebbe's and their style vs. other Rebeiim.

Otherwise, Rabbi Greenwald, Yashar Koach Godol for such a great lecture, inspite of my criticism I happen to agree with approach in defining what the Ayin Beis is, I also came to the same conclusion but you articulated far better than I ever could at this stage, maybe in 10 years I could do it too.

Please keep more coming, I can't wait to hear more from you.

Really need more....
Please whoever can upload more of his videos, OR try to convince to communicate more often to this broad classroom.....IF COL can help with the numbers of how many people watched it, it will help stress the importance of his shiurim online NOW!!

Thank you!

Re 12

The lecture was indeed given in front of an academic audience, hence the style and language.

Rabbi Grunwald gives many shiurim during the week and shabbos. He is recognized not only as an expert in Chasidus Chabad but in all Chasidus. Chasidisher mashpiam in Lakewood consider him an authority
