Baruch Dayan HaEmet.

There is a chilling symbolism in the death of our alumnus Rabbi Elyashiv Knohl on the 5th of Iyar. Rav Knohl was born a few months after the fall of Gush Etzion, while his father, Dov Knohl, one of the founders of Gush Etzion, was captured by the Jordanians. Rav Knohl merited to take part in the renewal of Gush Etzion post 1967, and among other things, served as the rabbi of Kfar Etzion.

But beyond the national symbolism, Rabbi Elyashiv was both a scholar and a wonderful man, pleasant and welcoming, loving peace and pursuing peace, loved by people and certainly beloved by Hakadosh Baruch Hu. His book "Man and Woman" was a must-have for each couple before their wedding, explaining in detail the halachic foundations between man and wife, in such a way as to suit his Torah greatness and pleasant personality.

What is the nature of holiness? What is theKedushat Aviv difference between the sanctity of Shabbat and the sanctity of Yom Tov? What is the connection between the sanctity of the Land of Israel and Jerusalem? The Temple and the Holy of Holies? How is holiness created and how is it uprooted?

"Some people’s Torah is to be found in their books, for others, in their lives,” my late, revered teacher, Rav Yehuda Amital once shared with me.
Here as always, his brief, aphoristic, seemingly simple words carried a world of meaning. His Torah was centered on embracing life and taking responsibility before God—and for one another—in our everyday lives.

RAL ByHisLight Character and Values in the Service of God new313x200

 BACK IN PRINT!!

In this volume, Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein explores the development of the religious personality. He advocates a life centered on the service of God, but recognizes multiple paths to this goal. Acknowledging that both the Jewish value system and human experience are multifaceted, he examines the relevant issues from an unusually wide perspective.

Rabbi Lichtenstein’s essays reflect not only a staunch commitment to Halakha and a firm grounding in rigorous Torah study, but also a deep spirituality, a profound moral sensitivity, and a keen awareness of both the challenges and opportunities of modernity. While being enlightened by Rabbi Lichtenstein’s penetrating analyses and wide-ranging learning, the reader will also be inspired by the beauty of his vision of the religious life.
