GREAT JEWISH LETTERS – A collection of classic and inspirational writings of Torah personalities

by yossi December 14, 2009

For millennia, the Jewish sages have shared their vast treasury of knowledge with us through their Torah works. Less well known, however, is the storehouse of wisdom available to us in letters that the great Torah scholars wrote to their families, disciples, and to the Jewish People.

In this unique collection Rabbi Moshe Bamberger, a respected scholar and educator, shares with us 120 great Jewish letters, translated into flowing English from their original Hebrew. Spanning the centuries from the Gaonic period to today, these letters contain fascinating historical insights and profound ethical truths. Some of the letters are classics, others not well-known, but all share a sense of both intimacy and eternity, a message from a father to a son, from a teacher to a student, from a leader to his people. The letters are arranged by topic, and each is prefaced by a brief biographical sketch of the author and is presented in its historical context.

From the Rambam, to the Alter of Slabodka; from the Gaon of Vilna to Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach; from Rashi to the Gerrer Rebbe and Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe, here are the authentic voices of Torah greatness, in their own beautifully-phrased words.

Lavishly designed with both photos and illustrations, Great Jewish Letters is an elegant and important work of both Jewish history and Torah thought.
