What is kehuna? The term is often translated as “priesthood,” and the Jewish kohanim are indeed charged with ministering God’s Temple, yet kehuna signifiesmuch more than that. A kohen is a representative of God on earth, and this designation thus carries moral and educational dimensions in addition to its ritual aspects. This book portrays a holistic view of the essence of kehuna and how kohanim (and non-kohanim) can live up to its ideals.
To Stand and Serve is dedicated to the memory of Marc Weinberg z”l, a man who lived the ideals of kehuna, and truly represented God in this world until his tragic and untimely departure. The volume contains contributions from mentors – Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks and the rashei yeshiva of Yeshivat Har Etzion: Rav Yehuda Amital and Rav Aharon Lichtenstein z”l and Rav Mosheh Lichtenstein shlit”a – friends, and students. Contains 11 articles in English and 10 in Hebrew. Co-published by Maggid Books and Yeshivat Har Etzion.
