For the Sake of Heaven

A Story of Leadership and Courage –
and the Awesome Power of Torah
When it Came to Torah and Truth -- He Would Not Bend.
In Days of Glory and Days of Peril -- He Would Not Surrender.

Chacham Yom Tob Yedid HaLevi lived an epic life of courage and devotion through his decades as Chief Rabbi of the glorious Halab (Aleppo) community.

As the community’s leader during its last days, he courageously faced challenges, torture, and threats. Amidst the confusion and turmoil, Hacham Yom Tob had the enormous responsibility of keeping his community devoted to Torah and tradition. And he accomplished the impossible: Halab remained as it had for centuries, a city where everyone kept Shabbat, prayed in the Bet Knesset, and stayed connected to Torah.

How did he do it? How did a young man, thrown into a role with great responsibility, respond so fearlessly, demonstrating wisdom and leadership well beyond his years?

In a saga that spans more than a century, For the Sake of Heaven takes us on an epic journey from Halab of old to tree-lined Brooklyn streets. With its fascinating twists and turns, this is a biography that reads almost like a novel, leaving us awed as we see so clearly the impact of one who devotes his life to teaching and studying Torah.

Read this book to be inspired by this incredible story of heroism, courage and the power granted to one who is totally devoted to Torah.
