The Rabbi Soloveitchik Library - volume 2 By David Shapiro Edited by Rabbi Jacob J. Schacter (287 Pages)Publisher: Urim Publications, 2005
The progression of topics presented in this volume reflects the national development of the Jewish people over the course of the seven weeks from Passover until Shavu'ot -- from the period of afeilah, the physical and spiritual darkness of Egypt, to that of or gadol, the light afforded by the teachings of the Torah and the revelation at Mount Sinai
Each of the chapters in this book focuses on a theme that has the following characteristics:
1. Deals with an area of Halachah to which the Rav contributed significantly to our understanding;
2. Discusses a topic whose study will enrich the religious experience of those who will read it;
3. Explores a theme that has relevance beyond the immediate context in which it is presented.
