I WOULD LIKE TO DEDICATE THIS WEBSITE AND ALL THE TORAH LEARNT FROM IT  TO MY FATHER YITZCHOK BEN NACHMAN HALEVI A"H
We must grasp every opportunity  to do the important things, to say the important words, to be with the important people.

I gave this shiur on the first yahrtzeit for my father, a"h, 18th Adar 5775 l'ilui nishmoso.

This lecture by Professor Gerald Schroeder was organised by my sister and delivered in Beit Shemesh,
also on the first yahrtzeit for our father, a"h, 18th Adar 5775 l'ilui nishmoso.

Acheinu - Hashem, please watch over and protect all of our brothers and sisters who are in trouble and captivity.
Our brothers of the whole house of Israel,
who are in distress and captivity,
on sea or land, may the All-present have compassion on them,
and lead them from distress to relief, from darkness to light,
from oppression to freedom, now, swiftly, and soon.
And let us say: Amen.

PICTURE
GALLERY

Please enjoy viewing
some of my drawings.

(full size A4)



The Chofetz Chaim ztz"l
- Rabbi Yisroel Meir Kagan -
Author of 21 seforim, including Sefer Chofetz Chaim (an organised and clear presentation of the laws regarding harmful speech), Sefer Shemiras Haloshon (guidance on guarding one's tongue, based on teachings of our Sages), and the Mishnah Berurah (his commentary on the Orach Chaim section of the Shulchan Aruch, which deals with daily laws for a Jew; the Mishnah Berurah became a standard source of Halochoh for Ashkenazim).

***



Rabbi Aryeh Levin ztz"l
Known as the
"The Tzaddik of Jerusalem" and
"Father of Prisoners"
because of his visits to prisoners and work on behalf of the poor and sick.

***



The Shem MiShmuel ztz"l
- Rabbi Shmuel Bornsztain -
The second Sochatchover Rebbe
He was know as the Shem Mishmuel because this was the title of his nine-volume work of chassidic thought on the Torah (vols.1-8)
and Haggodoh (vol.9).

***



(detail)
Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak
HaCohen Kook ztz"l
First Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi
in pre-State Land of Israel
Great Torah scholar, thinker,
Kabbalist and poet.

***



Rabbi Ovadia Yosef ztz"l was one of the greatest Torah leaders of the generation.  He wrote many seforim of halachic responsa.  Maran Hacham Ovadia held a number of leadership positions, including Dayan on the Jerusalem Bet Din, member of the Supreme Rabbinical Court of Appeals in Jerusalem, Sefardic Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv and Sefardic Chief Rabbi of Israel.  He set himself a life mission of restoring the primacy of Halachah among Sefardic communities, a goal that he achieved with great success.

***



Isaac (Issy) Simons a"h.
Issy Simons was my wife's
maternal grandfather.
He was the Shamas of Sheffield's Wilson Road Synagogue for many years, and ran the Chevra Kadisha.  Issy also supervised shechita in the abattoir.  I never met him, but I can tell from the memories I have heard that he was a lovely, popular man and a great character, who was devoted to family and community.

My written notes on Hilchos STAM (Sefer Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzoh)
based on shiurim with Rav Natan Siegel shlito,
5749 / 1989
(mainly covering: sections of Gemoro, Mishnah Berurah 36, Mishnas Sofrim, Mishnah Berurah 32)

Three thoughts for today, 
and every day
:

Make the most of your time ~
... so, don't just count the minutes,
make the minutes count !

It's not enough to just speak sparingly;
use the gift of speech to
i n s p i r e  and  c h a n g e  l i v e s
~
... so, don't just count your words,
make your words count !

Begin by appreciating all that Hashem has given you -
your health, your brain, your family, your talents;
then go out and jolly well make the most of them all
~

... so, don't just count your blessings,
make your blessings count !
