Editorial Reviews


''The essays collected in this volume are the result of decades of profound thought and original creativity of Eliyahu Safran, a talented writer, gifted teacher, and inspired educator. Having had the opportunity to engage personally with Rabbi Safran throughout the decades, I am certain that all who read these chapters will gain insight and inspiration from the creative and articulate way he presents Torah texts, ideas and lessons.'' --Dr. Norman Lamm, Past President - Yeshiva University

''For me, writing words of acclaim for Rabbi Dr. Eliyahu Safran's excellent new book is an opportunity for celebration. I celebrate the book, and I celebrate a friendship which spans more than a half-century. The book, a collection of the distinguished author's essays on the weekly Torah portion, reflects the author's erudition and literary skills. Moreover, it contains his penetrating insights into a wide range of contemporary issues, insights which reflect his creativity and perspicacity, as well as his courage. These insights are the product of Rabbi Safran's decades of experience in an astounding variety of community leadership roles. I have also discerned the influence of his prestigious ancestors in his writing, particularly in his passionate concern for the entirety of the Jewish people. This book will enable the reader to taste a special delicacy: ''Old wine in a new container''. Most of all, it will enhance and enrich the conversations of many a Shabbat table. With admiration and abiding friendship.'' --Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb, Executive Vice President, Emeritus Orthodox Union

''Rabbi Eliyahu Safran's volume on Parashat HaShavua is a delight to both the mind and the heart. With keen insight, Rabbi Safran poses questions that plumb the deeper meaning of the text and leavens his analysis with psychology and a profound understanding of human nature. Replete with sensitivity, warmth and wisdom, Rabbi Safran's commentary is a gentle reminder that the path to understanding the Torah is paved with feeling as well as intellect.'' --Rabbi Menachem Genack, Chief Executive Officer - OU Kosher

About the Author

Rabbi. Educator. Lecturer, and author. Since 1970, Rabbi Dr. Eliyahu Safran has defined these roles in Pittsburgh, New York and New Jersey. As Senior Rabbinic Coordinator and Vice President of Communications & Marketing at the Orthodox Union's Kashrut Division, Rabbi Safran developed far-reaching Kashrut educational programs and marketing techniques. Rabbi Safran's influence has been widest through his writings. He has authored several works, including Kos Eliyahu: Insights into the Haggadah and Pesach a much sought-after Pesach volume. His Sometimes You Are What You Wear! An Argument for Tzniut Modesty, brought a wise and learned voice to issues that have elicited tremendous discussion in both the Jewish and general community. And his, Meditations at Sixty One Person, Under God, Indivisible (Ktav Publishing), offers a thoughtful perspective on issues of the day, including kashrut, prayer and honesty. In addition to his book-length writing, Rabbi Safran has recently devoted his passion to Torah learning and study. His insightful commentary appears in both American and Israeli venues including Arutz 7 Israel National News, The Jewish Press,, Times of Israel and others. Known affectionately as the ''dreidel rabbi'', Rabbi Safran's highly acclaimed dreidel collection includes unique, creative and traditional dreidels from throughout the world. His marriage to his devoted wife, Clary, one of the community's finest wig designers and manufacturers, brings him daily joy. Together, they enjoy his four wonderful children and their families as well as her five children and their families.
