Brisk: A Torah dynasty unlike any other, and in Reb Chaim Brisker , you will encounter a definitive biography unlike any other. Monumental in scope while meticulous in detail, this initial volume encompasses Reb Chaim’s formative years, early teachers, his move to Slutzk, marriage, the development of his unique learning method, becoming a Marbitz Torah in Yeshivas Volozhin, until his appointment as Rav of Brisk.
Along the way you will meet the towering Torah personalities of that era – the Beis HaLevi, the Netziv, the Rogetchover, and so many others. Written by one of today’s most authoritative Torah biographers, Rabbi Shimon Yosef Meller, this superbly-crafted, intimate portrait – filled with precious stories and insights, hundreds of vintage photographs and documents – paints a vivid picture of this Gadol B’Torah, his exalted ways, his ameilus b’Torah, and of how he transformed the Torah world with a legacy that endures to this day.
