Jonathan's Little Corner : Torah : Teachings of the Rav

The Teachings of

the Rav

transcribed by Jonathan Baker

This is a set of summaries of a series of six lectures on the teachings of Harav Yosef Dov Halevi Soloveitchik zt"l by Rabbi Aaron Rothkoff-Rakeffet at Lincoln Square Synagogue from 7 June to 12 July 1993. They were transcribed and posted electronically by permission of Rabbi Rakeffet (who said that the lectures are in the public domain, but that I should try to quote him accurately). Rabbi Rakeffet is a Rosh Yeshiva and Professor at Yeshiva University's Gruss KollelElyon in Jerusalem, and is the author of the recent books The Rav.

Other material on the Rav can be found on the Mail-Jewish site, as well as the Rav's thoughts on the weekly Torah portions.
