Volume 1: The World of Jewish Learning

By Aharon Lichtenstein

Be the first to review this product

Volume 1 deals with various aspects of traditional Torah learning. The opening chapter focuses upon the rationale and religious significance of the study of Talmud. This is followed by two essays which analyze the character and methodology of serious Torah study. Subsequently, the focus shifts to the interaction between Torah study, narrowly defined, and related areas - whether general culture, or national service - which impinge upon the personal and institutional context of Torah study. In a similar vein, two chapters then treat at the world of halakhic decision, with reference to both the qualities requisite for the decisor and the human and social factors which legitimately affect the process of halakhic decision-making. The volume concludes with appreciative portraits of two masters greatly admired by the author, each of whom, in very different ways, exerted a major impact upon him: Rav Joseph B. Soloveitchik zt"l and Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zt"l.
