Gedolei Yisrael around the Year

Biographical sketches and choice Divrei Torah

By: Mendy Pollak

Many great Torah leaders have graced Klal Yisrael throughout the generations. We hear their names, but do we know who they were and what they taught?

Gedolei Yisrael around the Year helps familiarize us with our gedolim and their Torah through brief biographical sketches and chiddushei Torah, organized around the calendar according to their yahrtzeits. Now you can know the gedolim like never before — and be inspired!


“The author is already known for his ability to reveal the depth of scholarship of our gedolim. With great success, his words influence our generation, especially bnei Torah. They learn about the greatness of gedolei Yisrael during their lifetimes and their effect in the past, and how their actions impact the entire world in the present, as well.”

Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky, Rosh Yeshiva, Talmudical Yeshiva of Philadelphia


“The author has been zocheh to publish his engrossing maamarim on gedolei Yisrael, containing their life stories and choice chiddushim in a clear and pleasant manner.”

Rav Uri Weissblum, Mashgiach, Yeshivas Nachalas Halvi’im, Haifa


“I have seen the work that he plans to publish, and it has a double purpose. One is that the new generation should recognize and know gedolei olam from previous generations.
Secondly, to enable them to convey a devar Torah from the gedolim’s great treasure of Torah and yiras Shamayim. “This will bond together the new generation with the previous ones, which is proper for our orphaned age — to see and recognize who were the previous generations, and to honor them befittingly.”

Rav Avrohom Schorr, Bais Medrash Nezer Gedalyahu, Brooklyn
