A tribute worthy of the Rav Oct 10, 2004
Rabbi Joseph Dov Ber Soloveitchik Z"ts"l is here eulogized by a large group of his students , and by members of his family . They bring out his greatness in ' learning' and the tremendous influence he had on their lives. I found the most remarkable essay of all to be that of his father writing to recommend his son as candidate for chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv in 1935. The legendary Rav is here shown to be also a considerate human being. The book is inspired by love, gratitude and recognition of a true 'Gadol HaDor ' a giant of his generation. Who reads this book will meet a great Jewish teacher and thinker and come to know more intimately one of the most important Jewish spiritual leaders of the past century.
