This book depicts the personalities of our great Torah sages of the last generation in a unique new way!
Warmed by Their Fire brings you into the inner circle of more than a score of inspiring leaders. You’ll come to know the personality and warmth of these Torah leaders through the lens of first hand recollections by people who knew them well.
The subjects of these of these interviews span the gamut from Chassidic leaders to Lithuanian roshei yeshivah, and from Europe to Israel and America. Yisroel Besser brings them to life, based on the vivid memories and reminices of many of the disciples and peers of these venerated scholars.
Their public legacies continue to influence the Torah living and learning of Jews across the globe, but Warmed By Their Fire captures these remarkable men in a deeply personal way, as they were perceived and remembered by people who knew them close up. Readers of these accounts will picture themselves in the very rooms where these great people lived, taught, prayed, guided, and labored to preserve and transmit the glories of the Torah to a new generation of torch bearers.
Gather round and be warmed!
