Few contemporary books have had the impact that Aleinu L'Shabei'ach has had on the Torah world. Tens of thousands of copies have been read and re-read by a vast and varied group: Torah scholars and laymen, students and teachers, men and women. Based on the private writings, shiurim, and conversations with Rav Yitzchok Zilberstein, a son-in-law of Rav Elyashiv zt"l, and a noted rav and posek in his own right, Aleinu L'Shabei'ach is a remarkable compendium of Torah wisdom, stories of great men, anecdotes, mussar, and insight into our daily lives and challenges.
Aleinu L'Shabei'ach includes a stunning range of stories, based on pesukim from each parashah. From the study halls of Europe to a rebbetzin's kitchen; from a road- rage attack in Bnei Brak to the Chasam Sofer's visit to the Queen of Austria; here are stories that both pique the imagination and bring us new understanding of the messages that the Torah has come to teach.
But Aleinu L'Shabei'ach is far more than a storybook. Its explanations of the verses are profound and yet readable, shedding new light on the meaning of each word of the Torah. Every story, every moral teaching, is infused with emunah and bitachon.
Every word of Aleinu L'Shabei'ach -- challenges us to become better, greater, deeper people, more in touch with Hashem's kindness to us, and more aware of His presence in our lives.
