Aleppo- City of Scholars
by Rabbi David Sutton

Product Description
Based on LiKedoshim Asher Ba'aretz by Hacham David Laniado; Edited and expanded by Rabbi David Sutton; Translated by Isaac Kirzner

Known since Biblical times as Aram Soba, the city of Aleppo, Syria was a scholarly and spiritual center for thousands of years. Hated, persecuted, and finally driven out of its ancestral home, this community still lives on in thriving communities in Israel, America, Mexico, and worldwide, including the great Yeshivah Porat Yosef of Jerusalem.

Richly illustrated with hundreds of photos, including views of one of the oldest synagogues in the world, the vibrant heritage of Syrian Jewry comes alive in this magnificent history of Aleppo and its sages. This beautiful volume contains biographical information on several centuries of rabbis of Aleppo and Damascus - 600 of them - their ideals and teachings and their beloved pizmonim.

Written by a scion of Aleppo who both cherishes and reveres the luminous Judaism of this ancient community.
