Rabbi Chaim Aryeh Zev Ginzberg is a beloved rav in Cedarhurst who has engaged
thousands of readers with his incisive articles in the Torah world’s most
prestigious periodicals. Rabbi Ginzberg has a genius for weaving together personal
stories, Torah hashkafah, encouragement and chizuk, communal issues, and, yes,
gentle and spot-on mussar.
In this collection of his writings on many different topics, he takes us “up close
and personal” with memories of his own nisyonos — including his terrifying bout
with Covid, when the doctors felt there was no hope left for him; as well as the
losses of his beloved daughter Sarala and his oldest grandson, Chanoch Jeger.
Ginzberg’s courageous and uplifting responses to these losses — which include his
founding of the well-known Ohel Sarala global initiative give us chizuk and meaning
to the challenges we all face.
