Overview

Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik (1903-1993), commonly known as 'the Rav,' has stimulated and influenced the intellectual minds and touched the sensitive hearts of thousands of his students both in the United States and across the globe. With his death, a void was left in the modern intellectual Orthodox community. Although efforts have been made to transmit his Torah knowledge into written words, future generations of the vast English-speaking Torah community will be bereft of his enormous wisdom. The second volume of Halakhic Positions of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik continues to provide the modern reader with a glimpse into the illustrious and meaningful halakhic opinions of this highly revered Jewish scholar. Rabbi Aharon Ziegler, a student of the Rav, has illustrated the unique, and perhaps less known, halakhic views which will intrigue and educate those who seek more of the Rav's distinguished teachings. Whether studied in the synagogue, school, or home, this book is a valuable addition to any Jewish library.

Always precise and eminently readable, this important contribution to contemporary Jewish thought and practice is a valuable addition to any Jewish library and of ready use to the rabbi and layman alike.
Norman Lamm
This is straight-from-the-shoulder halakhic decisions, excellent for the layman who wants to know what the Rav said, not why.
Yaakov Klass
The Torah of one of the greatest halachists of our generation, HaRav Joseph B. Soloveitchik, zt"l, whose rulings are much sought after, are alive in the masterful works of our dear friend, colleague and columnist, HaRav Aharon Ziegler."
