an expression so frequently heard in the yeshivos, that it is tossed off with scarcely a thought. But where does one find that world?
Wherever Jews engage in Torah study, determining the Divine intent as expressed in halachic discussion and conclusion, there in those four cubits is the Divine Presence found. Those four cubits are the Torah World where the entire universe is sustained by Torah.

They are men of vision, men of brilliance, men of diligence, piety, and leadership. The heroism and the loneliness of their struggles, the inspirational beauty of their personalities, as well as the glory of their achievements, are captured here in these pages, where the reader is invited to take a long-view on the pioneering efforts of some
to slip into the front bench of the lecture hall to catch an intimate glimpse of yet another of the giants of the spirit who populate the Torah World
