Time Pieces: Reflections on the Jewish Year
This English Sefer delves into the ocean of Torah and brings up bits of fabulous treasure. The essays span the Jewish year, from Rosh HaShanah to Tishah B’Av, in which the themes of the Jewish calendar spring to life. They tell of the remarkable lives and deeds of great men, such as Rav Aaron’s own father, Reb Bentzion Lopiansky, Rav Chaim Shmulevitz, Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkel, Rav Nochum Partzovitz, and Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv. They present timeless issues such as the Chareidim and the draft, modern-day Jewish marriage, negotiating with kidnappers, and comparing the completing of the Talmud with competing in the Olympics. It is a rare work that profoundly delights even as it teaches and inspires.
