Overview

Some twenty years ago, the editors of Hamevaser, Yeshiva University's Torah student monthly, recognized the growing thirst for the late Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik's Torah teaching. In response, they published the original version of the "Conspectus," which contained the first English version of some of the Rav's published Hebrew and Yiddish essays and offered extensive summaries of some twenty of his shiurim and lectures. That collection has been long out of print, while demand for Rabbi Soloveitchik's teachings has grown apace. The result is this revised collection of his lectures, published in more permanent form. Among the lectures included in this volume are "The Ten Commandments," "The Covenantal Community," "On the Nature of Man," "On the Love of Torah," and many more. Essays subsequently published in full have been eliminated from this edition, since their texts are now generally available, and some new ones, which are not generally available, have been added. These include "Kodesh and Hol," from the student journal Gesher, "The Nine Aspects of the Haggada" from The Student Organization of Yeshiva University Haggada.
