‘Secular Humanist Jew’ of the ‘Frankfurt School,’ Erich Fromm:
I was [Chabad Rabbi Salman Baruch] Rabinkow’s student for about five or six years and, if I remember correctly, I visited him at that time almost daily. The bulk of the time was occupied studying Talmud, the rest with studying certain philosophical writings of Maimonides, the Schneur Salman’s Tanya, Weiss’s Jewish History and a discussion of sociological problems. He took great interest and was very helpful in my doctoral dissertation. Rabinkow influenced my life more than any other man, perhaps, and although in different forms and concepts, his ideas have remained alive in me.
