HARAV YEHOSHUA HESCHEL -THE REBBE R' HESCHEL Although generally not that well known in our time, Rav Yehoshua Heschel (1595 - 1663), was revered as the leader of his generation. His opinions were sought by all of the gedolim of his time and his halachic decisions appear in the Shach, Noda B'Yehuda, Chasam Sofer, Chelkas Mechokeik Chacham Tzvi and in many other seforim If one wanted to gauge his influence on Klal Yisroel, one would just have to open a Shulchan Aruch and see his many talmidim who grace its pages. Although commonly known as the Shach's Rebbi, in reality his talmidim included, the Taz, the Bais Shmuel, the Avodas Gershuni, the Tiferes L'Moshe, the Chelkas Mechokeik and many others. In addition to being one of the greatest marbitzei Torah of his era, Rav Heschel was extremely dedicated to taking care of his people's needs. Rav Heschel was beloved by all members of society and as such was commonly known as 'The Rebbe Rav Heschel'. THE CHANUKAS HATORAH Although most of Rav Heschel's seforim have never been printed, his ingenious vertlach on Chumash have been preserved in the sefer "Chanukas HaTorah." These brilliant vertlach have excited the Jewish mind for the last four hundred years. Indeed, it has been said that during our long and bitter golus, a Torah Jew could always rely on a good vort (or story) from the Rebbe R' Hershel to lift his spirits. We now present these divrei Torah in an easy to understand English, so that many more will be able to enjoy the creative genius of this Torah giant.
