I’m looking over a manuscript, and I’m smiling. Chuckling. Laughing out loud.
My husband, working at his computer across from me, looks up, puzzled. “What are you reading?” he asks.
“An incredible mussar insight,” I say, giggling.
His eyes light up in comprehension. “Oh, must be Rabbi Orlofsky,” he says.
If you are one of the tens of thousands who have heard Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky speak, you know what I’m talking about; if you haven’t yet had the privilege and pleasure, you’re in for a real treat, as you meet Rabbi Orlofsky in this newly published collection of his selected shiurim, Everyone’s Entitled to My Opinion: The Wisdom and Wit of Rabbi Orlofsky, adapted by Avraham Gindi.
Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky is quite a phenomenon in the Torah world. A globe-trotting lecturer and beloved teacher, he is known for his unique, a- story-and-a-joke-a-minute style – and, at the same, he is also hailed for the insight and depth of his Torah teachings. In the pages of this transformative new book, Rabbi Orlofsky takes a blunt, honest, always wise and often very funny look at our lives as observant Jews.
In Everyone’s Entitled to My Opinion, we will delve into the meaning of Shabbos, and our own Shabbos will be enriched. We will discover how to have a happier home and raise successful children, and how to live full and meaningful lives as Torah Jews. We will learn, we will change and grow – and we will laugh.
