The original Hebrew version of The Brisker Rav (HaRav MiBrisk) has won the hearts of Jews in Israel and all over the world. The book has created a new genre in Torah literature.
The research, tremendous in both quantity and quality, covering the entire stormy life of the Brisker Rav; the finely crafted writing; the beautiful, professional layout; and the rare photos that appear within — represent the fruits of many years of painstaking work.
The fourth and final volume of this monumental series, spans the years from 5716 (1956) up until the Brisker Rav's passing in 5719 (1959). In addition to chapters depicting his greatness in Torah and his leadership qualities, much is written to portray his extensive efforts toward upholding traditional Torah values, including his battle against the Zionist authority's insistence on watered down Yiddishkeit and the establishment of a modern-day Sanhedrin. The last chapter chronicles Maran's final days, as well as his petirah and levayah.
"The Brisker Rav" series is unique in that it is not just a biography of the Brisker Rav, but rather contains stories that give the reader a flavor for the last hundred years of life in the chareidi world - the issues, the controversies, and the emergence of the vibrant chareidi community that exists today in the Land of Israel.
