Rabbi Eliyohu Goldschmidt was known as a prominent yeshivah educator, a man with a profoundly positive influence on his talmidim at the famous Yeshivah Zichron Moshe of South Fallsburg, in upstate New York. He was also a master of human nature, especially as it affects marriage, child rearing and home life and many, many people called upon him for advice and guidance in both areas.
In this wise, loving, and provocative book, the author shares his years of experience, counsel, and Torah-saturated outlook with his Dear Daughter, and he invites every other dear daughter to read over her shoulder.
In these times of general stress, working mothers, and a society with eroding moral values, where the sanctity of marriage and the strength of the family are under heavy, if often subtle, attack, such a book is more vital than ever. And it does its job superbly.
The authors palette is piled high with colorful, amusing, enlightening, and insightful anecdotes, and he uses them like an artist to illustrate his points: stories like the one about the Russian officer whose car broke down; the bridegroom who lost a front tooth on the day of his wedding; the suggestion that parents should write a special kesubah with their children; the many memories of his childhood in Argentina.
The stories are interesting in themselves, but they become truly precious when they are related to family life in the authors unique manner.
Many a marriage, many a child, many a family, and many a friendship will be enriched and made happier thanks to this book. It is a work to read and savor, and it is a wellspring of wisdom that will refresh and invigorate many a stale relationship.
