Stories for Shauli
Stories for Shauli is a collection of marvelous tales about youngsters who grew up to become our gedolim, written in the merit of a little boy named Shauli who desperately needs a refuah shleimah. The book presents more than sixty memorable profiles of great Jewish leaders as children, from the Gaon of Vilna to Rav Moshe Feinstein, from the Ben Ish Chai to Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach. These are stories that inspire young and old to strive for greatness and remind us that we can, no matter what our circumstances, reach the heights of our spiritual potential, if only we try.
