STUDIES IN THE THOUGHT AND SCHOLARSHIP OF RABBI AHARON LICHTENSTEIN ZT”L

 

Through his teaching and writing, as well as through his exemplary personal qualities, Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein zt”l exercised a decisive influence over generations of students, rabbinic leaders, scholars and public figures in Israel, America and beyond. A month before his passing, he was honored with a special hardcover volume of Tradition containing fourteen in-depth essays exploring many facets of his teaching: his views on faith, Jewish identity, religious humanism, liberal arts education, Jewish law, public policy, public discourse, morality, study of the Talmud and the Bible, and more. This volume, meant to analyze and celebrate Rabbi Lichtenstein’s many contributions, can now be regarded as a first attempt to contextualize, evaluate and memorialize this titan of modern Jewish life.

The volume is edited by YHE alumni Rabbi Yitzchak Blau, Prof. Alan Jotkowitz and Rabbi Reuven Ziegler. The table of contents and introduction are available here.

We are happy to make this volume available for purchase to all those interested in the legacy of Rav Lichtenstein:

The Yeshiva runs on Talmud Torah, Tefilla, Middot Tovot, and Maasim Tovim. These days - we are all working that much harder to keep it all running. We wanted to highlight some 'Ovdei HaYeshiva' starting with Ovdei HaMitbach. These Guys are serving up meals to Yeshiva talmidim, Rabbeim and staff along with Evacuees from Kiriyat Shemone, Refugees from Kfar Maimon, an IDF unit serving in the area, elderly residents of Alon Shevut whose support system have been drafted, and are providing school meals including meals for children whose parents are currently serving and protecting.    
Oh, there are countless extras; one Shabbat, they prepared a Simcha for a Bar Mitzvah Boy - an evacuee from Kiriyat Shemone sheltering safely with his family in the Yeshiva dorms - whose father is currently serving and protecting. Some of them have been drafted and are serving on Emergency Response Teams. They show up in the kitchen and then leave to do their shifts.   All have family who are currently serving and protecting. Thanking them for showing up to work and working hard - every day - during these difficult times - way beyond the call of duty.
