One of the essential ways to “study” the Torah is to observe the behavior of great Torah sages, drink in their words and emulate their actions. Through this illuminating volume, we are given the opportunity to do just that — observing episodes in the life of one of the recent Gedolim of our time, Rabbi Elazar Menachem Man Shach, the revered Rosh Yeshiva of Ponevezh.
Following the sequence of the weekly Torah readings, this book, compiled by Rabbi Asher Bergman, a grandson of the Rosh Yeshivah, weaves together Rav Shach’s insights on the parashah, related anecdotes about his life, stories he told about his mentors, his loving interaction with students and colleagues, as well as eyewitness accounts of his disciples and associates. Rich in wisdom, thought-provoking and uplifting, this is a book you will look forward to reading from week to week — year after year!
