Rav Aharon Kotler zt"l came to America from Europe in 1942, bringing with him an unprecedented level of Torah learning, a pure and uncompromising dedication to Torah, and a Torah that was truly lishmah. In just 20 years Rav Aharon transformed the face of Torah in America. A Living Mishnas Rav Ahron-The Legacy of Maran Rav Aharon Kotler offers readers an intimate glimpse into the strength and spirit of this great man, through a wealth of stories, vignettes, insights, encounters with other great Jewish leaders, and most importantly, through a vibrant sampling of his teachings - all translated, for the first time, from the classic Mishnas Rav Aharon. Included are insights into chessed, Torah study, emunah, bitachon, hashgocha protis, middos, and much more. There are also entire chapters on the Rebbetzin a"h, Rav Shneur zt"l, Rav Nosson Wachtfogel zt"l, and the Lakewood Kehilla, along with many precious photographs - over 550 pages overflowing with the integrity, character, sanctity, and spirit of this Gadol BaTorah. Meticulously researched, compiled with great care, and beautifully written by one of Rav Aharon's talmidim - an eminent Talmid Chacham - this volume reads like a fascinating book, yet it is a sefer from which you will come away awed, uplifted, and inspired.
