Life and Teachings of Isaiah Horowitz” by Rabbi Dr. Eugene Newman, is a concise but comprehensive study of the life and works of the SHeLaH HaKodesh (1570-1626). The powerful impact of his teachings continues to be felt, even to this day. The broad scope of primary source materials, together with excerpts from the SHeLaH’s responsa, provide unsurpassed insight, not only into the sterling character of this Torah giant, but also into the unique political, social, and halachic problems of his time. Fascinating facts about Jewish life in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are skillfully woven together to demonstrate the close relationship between Jewish communal problems of that period and those of today. Most important, it is the story of one of the few who triumphed over the frightening circumstances that blocked Jewish immigration to Israel during the dark Middle Ages, a victory that ultimately led him to the seat of the Chief Rabbinate in Jerusalem and sparked the city’s revival as the center of Jewish learning. Revered to this day by both Ashkenazim and Sfardim, Chasidim and Misnagdim, the humble SHeLah HaKodesh truly epitomizes the ideals of sincere, effective Jewish leadership and Torah-true Judaism.
