Likutei Amarim Tanya, by HaAdmor HaZaken Rebbe Shneur Zalman of Liadi. Yas (Iași), 1843. With an enthusiastic approbation by R. Yosef Landau Rabbi of Yas, author of Responsa Birkat Yosef.

A decade before this book was published, a fierce dispute developed between the Chabad community in the city and the Chassidim of the Ohev Yisrael of Apta (then rabbi of the city), who strongly opposed the Chabad approach. In 1834, R. Yisrael of Ruzhin visited the city and made peace between the two sides. This may be what led to the warm approbation accorded by R. Yosef Landau, who was a close disciple of R. Yisrael of Ruzhin.
