The Vilna Gaon

The life and teachings of Rabbi Eliyahu, the Gaon of Vilna.

By Betzalel Landau


A meteor that flashed across the heavens and enlightened every area of Torah knowledge and living, the Vilna Gaon was a never-duplicated phenomenon.

The Vilna Gaon

This giant who never held a public position, had a profound effect on the Jewish world, an effect that continues to this very day, and speaks volumes for the power of Torah to mold people and societies

In this classic about a classic, meet the great genius of Kabbalah who sifted through every area of Torah knowledge, and established the proper texts for eternity.

Read of his journeys in “exile” as well as his mysterious attempt to travel to the Land of Israel.

Learn of his soul kinship with the legendary ger tzeddek, Avraham ben Avraham, and of the legacy of halachah, custom and love of Eretz Yisrael that he bequeathed to Klal Yisrael.

Yonason Rosenblum, the gifted writer of Reb Yaakov and Lieutenant Birnbaum, has adapted Betzalel Landau’s classic Hebrew biography, HaGaon HaChassid MiVilna. The brilliance of the many-faceted diamond known as “The Gaon” or by his acronym, “The GRA,” is brought to the fore in this dazzling account of his life, thought and worldview. This book includes a new chapter, never before published, about the Gaon and the Chassidim.
