Monumental in scope while meticulous in detail, this initial volume encompasses Reb Chaim’s formative years, early teachers, his move to Slutzk, marriage, the development of his unique learning method, becoming a Marbitz Torah in Yeshivas Volozhin, until his appointment as Rav of Brisk. Along the way you will meet the towering Torah personalities of that era – the Beis HaLevi, the Netziv, the Rogetchover, and so many others.
Written by one of today’s most authoritative Torah biographers, Rabbi Shimon Yosef Meller, this superbly-crafted, intimate portrait – filled with precious stories and insights, hundreds of vintage photographs and documents – paints a vivid picture of this Gadol B’Torah, his exalted ways, his ameilus b’Torah, and of how he transformed the Torah world with a legacy that endures to this day.
