Before Hashem You Shall Be Purified

Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik on the Days of Awe

Expanded Edition

Summarized and Annotated by Dr. Arnold Lustiger

List Price $29.50 / Was $25 / NOW $22.50

In this volume, Dr. Arnold Lustiger, a devoted follower of Rav Soloveitchik who has done so much to bring his Torah to a wider audience, presents readers with annotated summaries of a selection of the Rav’s teshuvah derashot. The ten derashot contained in this work (including two newly included in this edition) address the meaning of Rosh Hashanah, the shofar, Selichot, Erev Yom Kippur, Kol Nidrei, the essence of Yom Kippur, the Avodah, and, of course, the many facets of teshuvah, with the Rav’s characteristic insight, depth, and creativity. In addition to notes highlighting parallels to the Rav’s other writings, Dr. Lustiger has included links to recordings, where available, of the Rav delivering the derashot on which the volume is based. The publication of this important work brings both those who themselves heard the Rav and those who never merited to do so a step closer to understanding the message of the Days of Awe: “Before Hashem you shall be purified.”
