The Talmud speaks disparagingly of those who stand in respect for a Torah Scroll, but do not stand for a Torah sage. A righteous and learned person is a living Torah Scroll. Indeed, outstanding people make it their business to observe the everyday behavior of great men, so that they can learn from every gesture and nuance what the Torah expects of a Jew.

That is why this collection of biographical sketches is so important, and why its predecessors have been so popular. It is a textbook of inspirational conduct. Not many people can plumb the depths of Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach’s Talmudic and Halachic genius, but no one can fail to be moved by his kindness and respect for everyone, from a sanitation man to a small child. How can one fail to be uplifted by the Klausenberger Rav, who breathed life into the souls of countless survivors, despite his own unspeakable suffering in slave labor camps? Who can fail to gasp in amazement at the creative, imaginative kindnesses -- in the millions of dollars -- of the elementary school rebbe who carried the needs of hundreds of families on his shoulders?

These are only a few examples from this marvelous anthology. There are more than a score of biographies, each one a gem. These stories appeared originally in the Jewish Observer, and it is the fifth in this series of anthologies. They are all exceptional reading, filled with fascinating vignettes from the lives of famous and not so famous people, all of whom are role models par excellence.

From the battlefields of the American Civil War to the horrors of the Warsaw Ghetto to the teeming streets of the Lower East Side -- and many places in between -- this book will introduce us to people we wish we had known, and will be proud to emulate.
