Rav Asher Weiss shlita is a multi-faceted Torah personality. A close talmid of the Klausenberger Rebbe zt'l, he is a Chassidic Rav, a Rosh Yeshivah, an Av Beis Din and an expert on halachah and medicine. His shiurim, given in many locations throughout Eretz Yisrael, attract large numbers of enthusiastic participants.
He is also, as this work attests, a gadol b'Torah with a remarkable range of knowledge; a man whose very being is connected to the eternal wisdom of Torah -- and a person who knows how to communicate that wisdom to others. In Rav Asher Weiss on the Parashah Rav Weiss draws upon dozens of classic sources and commentaries, as varied as Rambam and Meshech Chachmah, the Zohar and the Midrash, Minchas Chinuch and Rav Chaim of Volozhin, to help us better understand the message of the parashah, and our own lives. We examine, through the lens of the Torah luminaries, issues such as middos development, the unity (and disunity) of the Jewish people, and the vital importance of Torah study. We begin to see more clearly the mission of the Jewish People, and our role in that destiny.
Rav Asher Weiss on the Parashah will surely enhance our Shabbos tables, as we gain an authentic Torah perspective on the parashah, and on the world around us as well.
