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?
