Scholar, author, authority on Lubavitcher Rebbe works to speak in Clearwater on June 11

Rabbi Chaim Miller Rabbi Chaim Miller Rabbi Chaim Miller, a noted scholar, prolific author and lecturer, will speak at the Tabacinic Chabad Center in Clearwater on Monday, June 11 as part of a special event commemorating the 24th anniversary of the passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

Rabbi Miller is a leading international authority for interpretation of Torah and mysticism, specifically the Torah-related works of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Rabbi Miller’s works have been disseminated widely and earned acclaim among colleagues in the educational and religious communities in which the works circulate.

The event is being sponsored by both Chabad of Clearwater and Chabad of Pinellas County and is open to the public. A dessert reception will be held at 7 p.m. and the lecture will be at 7:30 p.m.

Born and raised in London, Rabbi Miller was fascinated by Jewish mystical teachings and took a year off from his university studies 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. Since this time, he has completed 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.

In 2014 he released Turning Judaism Outwards, a biography on the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Rabbi Miller’s most recent work is The Practical Tanya, an 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.

“It is a real honor for our community to host such an accomplished scholar who has done so much for Jewish life and learning,” said Rabbi Levi Hodakov, co-director of Chabad of Clearwater.

Admission to the event is $10 per person, $18 per couple and $180 for sponsors (which includes a free copy of the book.) RSVP online at: or call (727) 265-2770. The Tabacinic Chabad Center is at 2280 Belleair Road in Clearwater.
