Description:

“Die velt fregt … The world asks … ” — 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.

Who are the leaders of this world – the men who bring Heaven and Earth together, perpetuating the transcendental moment of Torah teaching at Sinai? 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 … Lithuanian Roshei Yeshivah, Chassidic masters, teachers of Mussar, mentors of women’s seminaries — they are here, culled from the pages of The Jewish Observer, as well as several original works, to lead the reader by the hand on a tour of The Torah World.
