Now more than ever, the words of Rav Soloveitchik speak to us from across the threshold of time. Popularly known as the ?Hamesh Derashot,? The Rav Speaks consists of five speeches originally delivered by the Rav in the 1960?s. Then, as today, the eternal truth of his words spoke to the concerns and challenges we face as Jews in Israel and America. The essential principles of Judaism, and the eternal links between God, Torah, the Jewish people and the Land of Israel are the themes that dominate this seminal work.
