Building the Human Spirit
Rav Shlomo Hoffman was a genius in middos and Torah knowledge. It is rare to find a person who brings together so many different qualities of greatness, harnessing them together in the quest for perfection.
Foremost among his many special qualities was his dedication to studying from, absorbing and passing on the wisdom that he received from the many Torah giants from whom he studied. He helped all those who sought his guidance, with no thought of personal gain in terms of money or honor.
Building the Human Spirit is a wide-ranging compilation of Rav Hoffman’s teachings, which have become ever more popular with the passage of time. Section One details the stages of a child’s development from birth until young adulthood, through the eyes of Chazal. Section Two explains the foundations of chinuch and emotional growth based on the insights Rav Shlomo learned from Rav Isaac Sher, son-in-law of the Alter of Slobodka. Section Three is a collection of enlightening stories of Rav Hoffman’s experiences with Gedolei Yisrael. The book concludes with a short biography, gleaned from Rav Shlomo’s own reminiscences.
Here is a treasure trove of unique Torah wisdom, from a hidden giant who was crowned with the title, “The Listener.” Now you too can become a talmid, and learn to grow emotionally and spiritually as never before.
