About the Author

TORAH GIANT, PREACHER & KABBALA MASTERWithout doubt, one of the greatest Torah scholars of the last 300 years was Rabbi Yehonatan Eybeshitz--a Rav, Rosh Yeshivah, and Darshan. A prolific writer covering the vast gamut of Torah scholarship, he was among the leading Halachic deciders of his generation. His scholarly works are studied to this very day in yeshivot and kollelim throughout the world. Any rabbi giving a halachic ruling will seek out Rabbi Yehonatan's writings on the topic. His seforim--especially those that deal with halachic topics--are complex and demand a great deal of prior knowledge. 

Rabbi Yehonatan wrote extensively on the weekly Torah reading and the Yomim Tovim (festivals). His insights on the Torah, as well as his approach to his thoughts on the Yomim Tovim, are diverse in style and content. Rabbi Yehonatan was a darshan, and his writings--especially his work the Yaaroth Devash--reflect this.

Rabbi Yehonatan Eybeshitz was one of the greatest rabbis of the eighteenth century. His writings cover all areas of Jewish Learning, including the Talmud, the Shulchan Aruch (the Code of Jewish Law), homiletics, and Kabbala. Even as a child, he was renowned as one of the rare geniuses of his time. He served as rabbi of various communities for more than fifty years. He founded and led yeshivot for most of his life. His students became the leading rabbis and teachers of the next generation.
