By Rabbi Shai Graucher (Compiled by)
We welcome the malachim, the angels, to our Shabbos table. We welcome family, friends, students, strangers searching for their heritage. Now let us welcome a very, very special guest to join us for Shabbos: the Sar HaTorah, Maran Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita.
As we read through Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Chumash, we can almost hear the voice of this incomparable gadol b'Yisrael, in his Torah insights, his guidance in all matters large and small, and, particularly, in his stories, warm and personal, of his illustrious family. Here we will read about his father, the Steipler Gaon; his father-in-law, Rav Elyashiv; his uncle, the Chazon Ish; and, of course, his wife, Rebbetzin Batsheva Kanievsky.
Rabbi Shai Graucher is an almost-daily visitor to Rav Chaim. He pored through all of Rav Chaim’s many Torah writings, learned with him, and collected his insights and comments on the Chumash. He has been privileged to hear many stories directly from Rav Chaim and his family and these, too, are included. Everything has been adapted and translated for maximum readability and clarity.
The result of these labors? A unique work that will engage and illuminate everyone - men and women, parents and children, talmidei chachamim and laymen alike.
Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Chumash is an instant classic, a sefer that belongs on every Shabbos table.
