"Zeh hayom oso Hashem nogiloh venismecho bo."
It is a true source of joy for the Torah world that a group
of dedicated bnei Torah, talmidim and talmidei
talmidim of the Gaon HaRav Mordechai Gifter
shlita, the Telzer rosh hayeshiva, have
undertaken to reprint the Rosh Hayeshiva's monumental
sefer "Pirkei Emunah -- Shiurei Daas."
This sefer reflects the Telzer approach to mussar
and hashkofoh: that these subjects are inseparable
from the same depth, breadth, and piercing analysis that are
the foundations of iyun hahalacha.
HaRav Gifter, one of the Torah giants of our time, is known
the world over for his profound Torah knowledge and depth of
thought, his erudite ability to communicate the truths fo
Torah to all strata of the Jewish community, and for his sage
advice and guidance to all facets of the Jewish community.
Pirkei Emunah is a colleciton of Shiurei Daas --
masterful Torah discourses -- on emunah (faith and
belief), the greatness and qualities of Torah learning,
character development, the ideas inherent in the various
holidays, repentance, and various shiurim given in
memorial to the great and holy martyrs of Telshe in Lithuania
who perished during the destruction of European Jewry.
In addition to the deep, insightful, intellectual lessons
presented, the Rosh HaYeshiva, also a giant of emotion,
poetically pours out his heart and soul through his masterful
style of presentation.
This is a work that will continue to enlighten and inspire
new generations of those thirsty for the truth of Torah, who
sorely need the guidance and direction of the Telzer Rosh
May the reprinting of Pirkei Emunah, enriched with a
detailed index of sources and topics, be merit to the Rosh
HaYeshiva and his family for good health and long life. By
learning and living these Pirkei Emunah may we merit
to see the Geulah Sheleimo, soon in our days.
