Like its popular predecessor Five Great Lives depicts the character and achievements of five towering Torah personalities, Rabbi Shimon Finkelman, the best-selling, perceptive biographer of Torah greats, continues to enlighten and inspire in this new book.
You will be moved by the kindness and strength of Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld, legendary Rav of Jerusalem; the vision and determination of Rabbi Meir Shapiro, originator of the Daf Yomi; the genius and humility of Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzensky, Rav of Vilna and leader of his generation; the impact and faith of Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman, prime disciple of the Chofetz Chaim; and the concern and ahavas Yisrael of the Chazon Ish, the self-effacing gaon, who guided the yeshivah world in Israel, before and after the founding of the State.
Filled with scores of heartwarming anecdotes, Five Great Leaders provides enjoyable reading.
