From its final days in Europe, through years of exile in Shang hai and to its re-establishment in Yerushalayim, the destiny of the Mir and that of the ‘Stutchiner” were. one. Rav Chaim’s ability to see all of life’s experiences as examples of human nature and mussar was renown. Rav Chaim was orphaned at a young age. Being the oldest, he was responsible for the physical and spiritual needs of his younger brother and sisters. He often referred to that trying time in his derashos and mussar shmuessen, drawing examples from his own life to illustrate how relevant the words of Chazal and sifrei mus sar are to each of us today. Rav Chaim’s steadfastness in Torah learning was legendary. And yet, all who knew him spoke not only of his unbelievable hasmadah, but also of his extra ordinary compassion for his fellow Jew and his deep concern for the well-being of others. Indeed, his profound influence inspired generations of taimidim, many of whom are ;narbitzei Torah today. Originally written in Hebrew by Rabbi Reuven Grossman, z”l, this book is drawn from Rav Chaim’s own teachings and from the recollections of those who had the z’chus to know Rav Chaim personally. The stories within this English language edition will reacquaint many with Rav Chaim’s greatness and surely inspire yet another generation.
