Book chapter / Foreward
But, of everything the Rav was, he was first and foremost a student and teacher of Torah, exposing thousands of students in New York, Boston and elsewhere to the depth and richness of our tradition. And, as a result, there is simply no bener way to remember him than to study his Torah and give others the opportunity to do so as well. The Rabbi Soloveicchik Institute is happy to join with Urim Publications to present eleven themes of the Torah of the Rav on aspects relating to Pesach, sejirat ha-omer and Shavuot. This is the first of a projected series of books on the Rav's Torah relating to all the holidays in the Jewish calendar. We chose to begin with Pesach not only because of its formative role in shaping the Rav's religious consciousness but because it was in the midst of thatJ'Om tov that he passed away.
