Learning To Live

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.
Learning to Live, translated and adapted from the best-selling Hebrew Gedolah Shimushah, is not merely a biography, but a sefer kodesh. It is a stirring anthology of firsthand accounts, hanhagos kedoshos, and profound insights that reveal a glimmer of the greatness of the Posek Hador, Maran Harav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, zt"l.

This sefer was written by his close talmid, Rosh Yeshivas Haran, Harav Tzvi Weissfish, shlita. Rav Weissfish had the unique zechus of basking in the presence of Harav Elyashiv for over thirty years.

Throughout those decades of close contact with his cherished Rebbi, Rav Weissfish compiled an outstanding journal containing literally thousands of personal notes, stories, and lessons that enriched his life. Enhanced with dozens of interviews given by immediate family members and close talmidim, what emerged was a breathtaking mussar sefer deserving a place of honor not only in every home, but in every beis medrash as well.

Tens of thousands of copies have been disseminated around the world. Rabbanim, laymen, avreichim, yeshivah bochurim and n'shei u'bnos Yisrael, young and old, attest to the penetrating impact of Gedolah Shimushah on their lives and spiritual growth - which prompted the publishing of this new English edition.

Learning to Live is a riveting and inspiring glimpse at the gadlus of Maran Harav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, zt"l, whose radiance in Torah illuminates our world even today.

About The Author: Harav Tzvi Weissfish, shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Haran, is the author of the twenty-volume Dibros Tzvi and son-in-law of Harav Hagaon Reuven Fein, zt"l, Rosh Yeshivas Torah Vodaas. When he contemplated founding Mosdos Yeshivas Haran, his great-uncle, Harav Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky, the Steipler Gaon, zt"l, instructed him, "There is a Yid in Yerushalayim called Harav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv who lives in Meah Shearim. He is a very great man, a gadol hador; any questions you have - ask him." For the next thirty years Rav Weissfish maintained close contact with Harav Elyashiv, who allotted him a special time each week for consultation. The Yeshivas Haran network, with thousands of students comprising one of the largest mosdos in Eretz Yisrael, was the only institution directed by Harav Elyashiv on a daily basis.
