Anyone who ever heard Rabbi Sholom Schwadron speak will never forget the experience… the voice, the style, the content, the humor, the tears, the insights. A pulpit virtuoso of the old breed, Reb Sholom was one of the great public speakers of his era. His discourses in Jerusalem, Europe, and America attracted listeners by the thousands who sat rapt, captivated by this master of a vanishing art.
The traditional maggid – such as the legendary maggidim of Dubno, Kelm, and Bialystok – would go from town to town to encourage and admonish. He would hearten the downtrodden, humble the haughty, and generally urge his listeners to improve the religious quality of their lives. But he was not merely a purveyor of fire and brimstone. His address would be filled with stories and parables, for the master maggid was a master of storyteller as well. His stories were the sugar coating for his profound Torah message – and what a delectable combination it was!
In recent times, the message of the maggid has found its way to us through an additional medium. Rabbi Paysach Krohn was close with R’ Schwadron and counts himself among the maggid’s pupils. A master of the written word as well as a captivating speaker in his own right, R’ Krohn committed dozens of his mentor’s classics to writing, thereby enabling thousands more to absorb these timeless tales into their hearts and homes.
Now available on CD and tape, we present yet another way of enjoying R’ Schwadron’s favorite stories and parables. Captivating narration, beautiful music, and realistic sound effects create a new listening experience as these ageless anecdotes come to life.
Narrated by: Reuven Dovid Miller • Music by: Suky Berry • Executive Production: Bisker Co.
