About the Book

The drasha, or traditional sermon delivered during services, is a rabbi's primary means of conveying Torah ideology and inspiration to his congregants. Many a shulgoer has recounted how, in trying moments of life, the refrain of a rabbi's drasha echoing in his or her head has provided the fortitude and clarity to rise to life's challenges.

An engaging and thought-provoking speaker, Rabbi Avraham Steinberg now turns his talents to the art of written sermonics. Rabbi Steinberg gleans nuggets from the classic commentators of old, the greats of the yeshiva world today, the illustrious Chassidic rebbes, and the giants of the Mussar movement, and then adds his own insights and modern-day applications, to fashion drashos that are at once rich in tradition as well as contemporary and pertinent.

The weekly Torah portion has always been the lens through which believing Jews have viewed and understood the events of their lives. Whether you're a rabbi or a layperson, you'll appreciate traveling through the year, parsha by parsha, enjoying the warmth and wisdom of this timeless collection.
