The Maharal of Prague is a seminal figure in the world of Jewish thought, whose ideas have served as a springboard for many of the major currents of mussar, chassidus and machsheves Yisroel (Jewish thought). To this day, the Maharals teachings continue to play a role in our religious observances, the structure of our Torah and communal institutions -- even our thought processes -- in many overt as well as subtle ways.
In his writings the Maharal freely draws upon diverse aspects of Torah knowledge. The reader who concentrates on the unified thread of his presentation, as it traverses the Torahs broad landscape to deftly establish a point, is afforded a rare glimpse at the potency of an all-encompassing mastery of Torah such as was possessed by the Maharal.
In Nesiv HaTorah, the first section of the Maharals classic work, Nesivos Olam, the Maharal, culling numerous sources in the Talmud and Midrash, deals with the profound relationship between the Jewish nation and the Torah, and elucidates the transcendental underpinnings of this relationship, as well as the obligations it imposes on each and every one of us as Jews.
As the inner dynamics of the Torah/Jew nexus become clear, through this in-depth and detailed exploration, the reader will gain appreciation of the Torahs inner luminescence and of how he can attach himself to it.

Eliakim Willner has produced a translation that is remarkable in its accuracy and breathtaking in its felicity and beauty. It captures the self-portrait of Torah that the Maharal painted in his Nesiv HaTorah.
