Never published before in any language, this collection from the notebooks of HaGaon HaRav Moshe Feinstein, opens a window into the thought of one of the greatest Jews of the century. For nearly fifty years in the United States, no voice was more revered, beloved, and respected than that of the Rosh Yeshivah of Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem and the acknowledged halachic decisor of his era. His memory is still warm and his influence is still strong, because his rulings remain the guide and foundation of his successors.
There was another side to his greatness. His frequent talks at all sorts of occasions, communal and private revealed him as warm and caring, trenchant and thoughtful. In the Torah portion of the week, he saw appropriate insights and messages for every setting, sad or joyous, auspicious or challenging. The common theme that infused everything he said was the joy and beauty of Judaism. His homilies reflected the person: brilliant, wise, understanding, sensitive, filled with desire to know the Torah and the conviction that there was no greater privilege than to do so and to help others do the same.
This book contains a selection of his interpretations of the weekly parashah, as he himslef wrote and delivered them during a nine-year period in the Unired States. During his decades of leadership, people thronged to see him and hear him. Through this book, more throngs can do the same, as they read the words that moved him and inspired others.
Just as his era was able to glimpse this human epitome of Torah greatness, so a new generation of readers will find in this work so many rays of the brilliance that gladened and quickened countless hearts and ignited countless minds.
