Rav Noach Weinberg, a pioneer in Jewish outreach and the legendary founder and Rosh Yeshiva of Aish HaTorah, was a man whose very essence was love – love for Hashem, His Torah, and His people. Rav Noach’s entire being radiated wisdom and joy, and no wonder: he was profoundly and deeply connected to the Torah, the source of all wisdom and true happiness.
And how he loved to give over that wisdom. His Thursday night Torah lectures were legendary. The newest arrival to Aish HaTorah and seasoned kollel students — everyone wanted to hear what Rav Noach had to say about the weekly parashah, and how we could take Toras Chaim, the Torah’s wisdom for living, into our own lives and challenges.
In Wisdom for Living, Rav Noach speaks to us with all the brilliance, passion, and fervor that he brought to those unforgettable Thursday night sessions. His devoted students, Rabbis Nechemia and Yitzchak Coopersmith, have adapted those lessons for print, scrupulously maintaining Rav Noach’s unique and beloved voice. In every parashah Rav Noach uncovered a piercing insight for our lives. Sometimes he discovered a truth to help us break down our barriers to greatness, other times he shared an unexpected insight into the workings of the cosmos – or our own daily lives. This remarkable book shares some of Rav Noach’s revolutionary approaches to understanding the wisdom of the Torah in today’s world.
Over the years, the name Mordechai Weinberger has become synonymous with practical advice on living a better and more vibrant life.
