What is Chitas?

Briefly, ChiTaS is an acronym which stands for Chumash, Tehillim, and Tanya.

  • Chumash is the Five Books of Moses aka the Pentateuch, namely Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
  • Tehillim is the Book of Psalms
  • Tanya is a Kabbalistic (mystical) work.
  • Doing Chitas means that I complete these 3 works on a yearly cycle (Psalms on a monthly cycle), in synch with many others the world over.

    ? Why am I telling you about this? Because if you are interested in doing Chitas yourself, almost everything you need is available online.
