Tanya helps us be ‘laborers,’ people that proactively work on their relationship with Hashem and their own spiritual development. The goal of the Tanya Tools recordings is to facilitate this by focusing on a conceptual point and elaborating on its practical application for our personal growth. Each recording is one minute or less, to give people today, always on the run, a tidbit of a thought, which they can put a lifetime of work into.

Below is the list of recorded classes that can be accessed anytime by putting in the class’s reference number when prompted. If no number is selected, the default will be the most current class. Whenever a class is recorded twice, listen to the second recording. The first had some technical issue which necessitated it being recorded twice.
