Book Description:

Collecting over 55 essays by his students and those close to him, Mentor of Generations: Reflections on Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik offers readers anecdotes and insights about one of the most outstanding Jewish leaders of the twentieth century. Rabbi Soloveitchik, remembered fondly by those close to him as the Rav, inspired the growth of an Orthodox Jewish community in Boston, ordained thousands of rabbis at Yeshiva University s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary in New York and participated in many organizations aimed to further Orthodox Judaism in America and Israel. This volume pays tribute to his accomplishments while at the same time shares untold stories and perspectives critical to the yet unwritten definitive biography of the Rav. The many contributors within the pages of Mentor of Generations shed light onto over six decades (1930s through 1980s) of the panoramic life of the Rav. This volume probes the humanity of one of the most revered scholars and leaders of the past generation.
