Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld was the illustrious and beloved Rav of
the Old Yishuv of Jerusalem during the turbulent years of the British Mandate
and the harsh era of Arab anti-Semitic uprisings. In that difficult time, this
man of courage, wit, and scholarship was a source of profound Torah wisdom and
the embodiment of piety.
Over a period of many years, his great-grandson collected Reb Yosef ChaimÆs
comments on the parashah, resulting in this outstanding collection of
insights, comments and interpretations of the weekly Torah reading. Rabbi
Shlomo Zalman Sonnenfeld, a respected talmid chacham in his own right, is a
well-known writer and community leader in the city government of Jerusalem.
This volume presents gems of Torah wisdom written in a readable, fluid style
that will uplift readers on every level. What could be better than enhancing
