Rabbi Soloveichik's Essays:
Tribute to Eminent Halakhist

Rabbi Joseph Soloveichik,
noted scholar who is revered
in the Orthodox Jewish com-
munities throughout the world
as the outstanding authority
on Jewish traditional laws,
is revered by his students as
"the man of Halakha." In ap-
preciation for his labors, in
tribute to the guidance he
gives the students. Hame-
vaser, the official pUblica-
tion of the Jewish studies
division of Yeshiva Univer-
sity, has compiled several of
his lectures into an impres-
sive 104-page paperback.
Under the title Shiurei

Shabat Minha prayer: 'You
are One, and Your name is
One, and who is like Your
people Israel, one on earth.'
Shabat takes us out of the
normal world and reminds
us of our unique destiny."
Rabbi Soloveichik defines
"the covenantal man" as one
who "has an awareness of
greatness and at the same
time an awareness of help-
lessness."
Halakhic perspectives, the
unique experiences of Juda-
ism, the role of the synago-
gue, the process of teshuva
(repentance) a n d kapara
(atonement) are valuable
additions to the numerous
other essays in this informa-
tive collection of essays. Pu-
rim and Passover are dis-
cussed, there are tributes to
eminent rabbis and the en-
tire collection is a well chos-
en grouping of interpretive
works by the noted halakhist
of this age.
