Hatomim (Hebrew: התמים‎) was a scholarly journal published by the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic movement.[1] The journal was published under the direction of the sixth Rebbe of Chabad, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn.[2] The journal published articles on Chabad philosophy and Talmud.


Hatomim was the first Hasidic publication to publish a photograph of a Hasidic Rebbe. The first was a portrait-photograph of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, the sixth Chabad Rebbe. It was published in a 1936 edition[3] marking the Rebbe's liberation from Soviet imprisonment.[4]


The editors-in-chief of Hatomim were:

  • Rabbi Yechezkal Faigen, Chassidism
  • Rabbi Yehuda Eber, Talmud
  • Rabbi Shmuel Zalmanov, General editor[5]

The seventh Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, was also involved in editing the journal.[6][7]


The journal ran from 1935 to 1938 and a collection of Hatomim was later reprinted in book form by the central Chabad publishing house, Kehot Publication Society. Editions of Hatomim include:

  • Kfar Chabad, Israel (1971)[8]
  • Brooklyn, New York (1975)[9]
