Year by year, thousands of Jews lovingly tread the familiar path of the weekly Torah readings. The path, however, becomes so familiar that it is easy to forget that beneath the surface lie countless strata of hidden treasures. Mercifully, though, from time to time, such as when one studies one of the Lubavitcher Rebbe's talks on the weekly Torah readings, a penetrating shaft of light opens up the surface terrain; it grants the reader a breathtaking glimpse of the deepseated treasures that have lain hidden from mortal eyes since Sinai.

Many of these weekly sichos of the Rebbe have already appeared in a variety of translations, summaries and adaptations. Yet this book is unique. Here the Rebbe's insights and interpretations are perceived through the eyes of a woman.

For many years, until her passing in 1992 at the age of 39, hundreds of women of all ages and levels of observance eagerly attended Nechoma Greisman's weekly classes on Chassidic Insights into Torah, at Machon Chaya Mushka and at the Israel Center in Jerusalem. As those women fondly recall, each of these shiurim was not merely a forum for the transmission of information: it was an unforgettable happening, a shared sisterly quest, a joyful igniting of souls. (Regrettably, not all of these classes were taped.) Basically, they constituted a chassidic lesson in learning from life. In addition, their womanly perspective considered the varied roles of women earnestly, yet with mellow good humor. Now, within the limits of the printed word, much of their tone and savor is distilled and preserved in these pages.

The present book will be a welcome breath of life for those who seek a human, vibrant, chassidic guide to digging for treasure, whether it is hidden within the weekly Torah readings or within oneself. For those who have read (and reread) The Nechoma Greisman Anthology, the present book will be doubly welcome. Simultaneously, it presents womanhood through the eyes of Chassidism, and Chassidism through the eyes of a woman.
