Divrei Torah from HaRav Henoch Leibowitz

Rare it is that one person was a rosh yeshivah for over six decades in the same institution. Continuing his Sladodka legacy for over 63 years, HaRav Henoch Leibowitz zt"l, Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivas Chaim,  trained thousands of students who today influence the advance of Torah worldwide. Two of his students, Rabbi Aryeh Stricks and Rabbi Shimon Zehnwirth, have compiled many of the Rosh Yeshivah’s divrei Torah on the parsha into the just-released Pinnacle of Creation: Torah Insights into Human Nature. This book presents the pristine views of the Rosh Yeshivah, based on the teachings of the Alter of Slabodka and faithfully brought down to our day.

Harav Leibowitz first book of divrei Torah with ArtScroll, compiled by the same former students, is entitled Majesty of Man and has been a classic source of wisdom and inspiration for well over a decade.
