Description:

Shlomie Gross evoked joy and excitement wherever he went. He was a successful businessman and an activist for more worthy causes than anyone knew about.

He was warm, humorous, charismatic. But that was not the secret of his popularity.

Above all, Shlomie's heart was -- as a friend put it -- "as huge as his frame." He was everyone's best friend, because he cared for every Jew like a brother. He made poor people feel like they were doing him the favor when he gave them tzedakah. When a person needed major surgery that he could not afford, Shlomie was not content to give generously; he made phone call after phone call until he raised all the money.

In this unusual, riveting biography, you will come to know the many facets of this unique person. Shlomie was blessed with devoted parents whom he loved and respected and who imbued him with the values that stayed with him all his life, but he faced great challenges growing up.

He had a restless nature and could not focus in the classroom. He went from yeshivah to yeshivah, searching for the success that eluded him. As he matured and married his ezer k'negdo, Shlomie became more adept at channeling his boundless energy positively. And then an encounter with a renowned rosh yeshivah became a life-changing experience. From then on he grew as a ben Torah, and his young family grew with him.

Shlomie was, in his own words, "a regular guy." He was wrong. People who knew him recognized that in his chesed and love of fellow Jews he was one in a generation. He revered gedolei Yisrael and they in turn loved and admired him. They knew that his was the shoulder that every poor man, every widow and orphan, could lean on for support.

He also developed a relationship with troubled teenagers whose lives he helped turn around. They came to realize that everyone could be like Shlomie - and many of them changed their lives because of his encouragement and example.

When you read this book you'll love him and wish you had known him. You'll Say that knowing him would have made you a better person. You'll find yourself saying, "What would Shoimie have done?" And you'll do it!
