Description:
Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet-Rothkoff is a loving and beloved educator who has transformed thousands of students through his distinctive mixture of humor, sensitivity, storytelling ability and a profound Torah worldview. In his unique style, Rabbi Rakeffet describes all that he witnessed from his childhood in the Bronx through his adulthood in Jerusalem. The book details the "old Bronx", the "Shanghai Crowd", Yeshiva University, the American Rabbinate and his chosen calling of teaching Torah.

In the Israel section he highlights the Israeli Defense Forces, the teaching of Torah behind the Iron Curtain, and the establishment of university Torah programs geared for the Anglo world.

Explore the dimensions of the embattled Orthodoxy of America in the 1940's and 1950's, the incredible growth of Torah in Israel in the 1970's and beyond, and the remarkable personalities and events that defined those eras
