This remarkable work by Rabbi Aaron Goldscheider provides new insights on the weekly parashah into the Torah’s message from different vantage points. Delve into the intellectual brilliance of Rav Soloveitchik, spiritual depths of Rav Kook, and the passionate devotion of the Chassidic Masters. Witness the unity and diversity of Jewish thought as these profound scholars come together in harmony.

Torah United pays homage to the well-known aphorism, “shiv’im panim l’Torah – there are seventy facets to the Torah.” For each parashah, Rabbi Goldscheider has crafted three separate essays, each based on the thought of one of the following: Rav Kook, Rav Soloveitchik, and the Chassidic masters. The essays do not merely cite excerpts from these noble sources. Each essay contains Rabbi Goldscheider’s in-depth analysis and perceptive discussion of  the distinctive approaches of Rav Kook (love of Eretz Yisrael), Rav Soloveitchik (intellectual and philosophical perspective), and the Chassidic masters (mystical and spiritual), providing the reader with a rare experience of Torah study.

Rabbi Goldscheider’s underlying philosophical approach to Torah study is that this synthesis of thought is the proper and correct way to study. Bringing together the diverse traditions of Chassidim and mitnagedim is part and parcel of achdut which we should all be seeking. In Torah United, Rabbi Goldscheider unites the Torah by weaving together three diverse strands of thought into a beautiful tapestry.
