Monday, May 14th 2007 (the 26 of Iyar 5767) is being celebrated as the 300th birthday of Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzutto, known as Ramchal. There will be special celebrations in Jerusalem, Israel; in Padua, Italy where he was born; and on various on-line sites.

Rabbi Yaakov Feldman, who conducts Project Genesis's "Ramchal" series (as well as "Spiritual Excellence") and has written extensively on Rabbi Luzzatto's works, will be offering a special four part weekly series entitled, "A View of the Tzaddik and His Works: in Celebration of the Ramchal's 300th Birthday" in celebration.

The first installment will be mailed out on May 14th 2007 itself and will be comprised of a biography of Ramchal, the second will offer a short description of his many works, and the third and fourth will focus in succession on two lesser known works of his: Klach Pitchei Chochma ("138 Gates of Wisdom") and Da'at Tevunot ("Knowing The Reasons") by describing them and granting us insight into them.

Those already subscribed to "Ramchal" and "Spiritual Excellence" will automatically be sent the series, while all others who want to can receive it by sending a blank e-mail to .
