A Magnificent Read--An Inspirational Life!
In this stirring autobiography, Rav Yitzchak Zilber — legendary leader of Russian Jewry in Israel for the past three decades — tells his personal life story intertwined with the general story of Russian Jewry behind the Iron Curtain. In an era when our People faced formidable tests to remain Torah-observant Jews, Rav Yitzchak courageously stood up for his beliefs and encouraged hundreds of others to do the same — both in the Soviet Union, and later on, with his kiruv work in Eretz Yisrael and the Diaspora.
Translated from the original Russian and Hebrew editions, this story will continue to inspire thousands and show what it truly means To Remain a Jew!

My rabbi spoke about this book during a Torah class, and that made up my mind to get a copy of the new printing! Rav Zilber z"tl was a truly amazing Jew, and raised his family to be the same. The difficulties of an observant person in the U.S. are *nothing* like the senseless persecutions in the Soviet Union-- but the Divine providence demonstrated in these stories should help increase anyone's emunah!! Thank you for bringing this out in another printing!!
most inspiring read ever!
The greatest book I've ever read. Period.
This book is a great read. It is historically accurate and inspiring as well.
I have to say that this book is outstanding--a wonderful blend of history, biography, stories, anecdotes, all designed to be totally inspiring. I happen to know the daughter of Rav Yitzchak Zilber, the Zavdi family in Yerushalayim, so this book held special meaning for me. The Rav's mesirus nefesh, always done without fanfare and fear, is unbelievable yet totally true. This book is really incredible. I found myself completely absorbed in it.
At first I wasn'y interested in reading a Russian biography, but when I picked it up I couldn't put it down...
For anyone who has ever thought 'this is impossible' or 'it is too hard', read this book and you will never say that again.
