"Some people’s Torah is to be found in their books, for others, in their lives,” my late, revered teacher, Rav Yehuda Amital once shared with me.
Here as always, his brief, aphoristic, seemingly simple words carried a world of meaning. His Torah was centered on embracing life and taking responsibility before God—and for one another—in our everyday lives.

RAL ByHisLight Character and Values in the Service of God new313x200

 BACK IN PRINT!!

In this volume, Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein explores the development of the religious personality. He advocates a life centered on the service of God, but recognizes multiple paths to this goal. Acknowledging that both the Jewish value system and human experience are multifaceted, he examines the relevant issues from an unusually wide perspective.

Rabbi Lichtenstein’s essays reflect not only a staunch commitment to Halakha and a firm grounding in rigorous Torah study, but also a deep spirituality, a profound moral sensitivity, and a keen awareness of both the challenges and opportunities of modernity. While being enlightened by Rabbi Lichtenstein’s penetrating analyses and wide-ranging learning, the reader will also be inspired by the beauty of his vision of the religious life.

NEW SEFER BY MOREINU
HARAV AHARON LICHTENSTEIN zt"l


Harav Aharon Lichtenstein ztlKEDUSHAT AVIV is the latest in a series of Torah Literature by Harav Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l, this one on the subject of holiness. Harav worked on this sefer in his lifetime, and it was completed posthumously by incorporating manuscripts and recordings of his lessons.  

What is the nature of holiness? What is theKedushat Aviv difference between the sanctity of Shabbat and the sanctity of Yom Tov? What is the connection between the sanctity of the Land of Israel and Jerusalem? The Temple and the Holy of Holies? How is holiness created and how is it uprooted?
