Voice of Truth

The life and eloquence of Rabbi Sholom Schwadron, the unforgettable Maggid of Jerusalem
By Rabbi Yaakov Aryeh Ariel

Excitement fills the room as Rabbi Sholom Schwadron ascends the podium. He was not only the Maggid of Jerusalem -- he was the Maggid of the world!

Voice of Truth

Whether in an ancient synagogue in Jerusalemís Zichron Moshe or Shaarei Chesed, or a contemporary structure in suburban America, people lean forward in anticipation. That unique and inimitable voice. The brilliant Torah interpretations. The sparkling witticisms. The story that made you cry -- and think! The observation that made you roar with laughter -- and think!

Rabbi Schwadron was more than a great speaker. He was an artisan of the spirit who helped mold the personalities of countless yeshivah students and adults. He was an architect of the emerging personality of the Jewish state, a man who was intimately involved in the struggles to establish a network of Torah schools and prevent Jewish youngsters from being ensnared by alien cultures. He was an exceptional Torah scholar, who edited the works of his illustrious grandfather, the Maharsham, and his teachers, and wrote his own Torah essays. He was a tzaddik whose private piety was known to very few. Indeed, much of it became known only in his later years when he was a widower, and yeshivah students stayed in his apartment overnight. They saw his hitherto unknown observance and the reams of his writings.

In this anecdotal biography, this multi-faceted man is revealed in all his charismatic brilliance: his poverty-stricken youth as an orphan, his unyielding determination to excel, his incredible kindness, his total dedication to great causes.

As we read this book, we get to know and understand the total Reb Sholom -- what a wonderful experience it is!
