A Gadol in Our Midst


Anecdotes, Advice, and Piskei Halachah of Harav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg, zt"l

The life of the legendaryåÊ gaonåÊRav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg,åÊ zt‰۝l, spanned much more than just a century of time. Every moment of his life was utilized toward learning and teaching Torah, observing each and every mitzvah in the best way possible, developing his own sterling character, and assisting others with their difficulties. He was -- and remains -- an extraordinary personage and a symbol of our own potential to achieve greatness.

Our generation was blessed with the opportunity to behold one of the greatest American Torah figures in history, Rav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg,åÊ zt‰۝l.
Transforming himself from a baseballplaying New York youth to a reveredåÊ rosh yeshivahåÊamong the elite heads of Torah Jewry, he demonstrated by personal example what a person can become when he dedicates himself to pure Torah learning.
Yet, with all of his greatness, he didn‰۪t become aloof; he was always available -- with his trademark smile -- for every Jew who sought hisåÊ p‰۪sak, advice or encouragement.
Thanks to his closeåÊ talmid, Rabbi Shmuel Assayag, Rav Scheinberg‰۪s precious legacy has been preserved with this collection of enriching
anecdotes, advice andåÊ piskei halachah. Covering a wide range of topics from guidance on proper conduct in yeshivah, interpersonal relationships
and raising children, to practical rulings on common halachic queries,åÊ A Gadol in Our MidståÊwill treat readers to a glimpse into the great personality of thisåÊ gadolåÊand his balanced approach toåÊ halachahåÊand life.
