Torah Inspiration from the Land of Israel
by Rabbi Joshua Gerstein
In this unique work, Rabbi Joshua Gerstein delves into the text of the Torah (and, specifically, the books of Bereshit and Shemot) with one goal in mind: to demonstrate that the Torah is a living and breathing guide with extraordinary relevance and insight for contemporary Jewish life. The imperative of Ahavat Yisrael, the centrality of the Land of Israel, the beauty of Jewish living, and the importance of Halacha and Torah study are among the main themes outlined in this work. Using a wide array of sources from Rishonim, Achronim, and contemporary Rabbinic scholarship, he weaves together an elaborate tapestry which is sure to leave readers with a newfound appreciation and understanding for the timeless text of the Torah.
"Ahavat Yisrael and love of the Land of Israel glow throughout the entire book, and I have no doubt that it will be warmly and lovingly accepted by those who are thirsty for the word of Hashem."
- Rabbi David Lau, Chief Rabbi of the State of Israel
"… this is a broad collection of first-class scholarship, presented in short, clearly written essays, radiating with a profound love of Torah, the Jewish people, and the Land of Israel." >
- Rabbi Chanan Morrison, author of Gold from the Land of Israel
