OU Press, the publishing division of the Orthodox Union, announced the publication of Rabbi Aaron Adler’s Vayehi Bi’nesoa Ha’aron: Seventy Conversations in Transit with HaGaon HaRav Joseph B. Soloveitchik zt”l, published in conjunction with Urim Publications.

While a student at Yeshiva University, Rabbi Aaron Adler, now a communal rabbi and rosh yeshiva in Israel, had the privilege of serving as Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik’s driver. In this charming and edifying book, Rabbi Adler records some of the conversations he had while driving with “the Rav,” one of Judaism’s leading figures in the twentieth century, bringing to life the Talmud’s teaching that “service of Torah is greater than study.”

These discussions relate to Jewish law, teaching and studying Torah, the well-being of Israel and the Jewish people, ethics, and more “mundane” topics, revealing a more personal dimension of a scholar known for his demanding intellect. Rabbi Adler ably draws out the implications of the Rav’s comments and provides the context necessary to understand the Rav’s views.

This volume joins the extensive number of works published by OU Press containing the teachings of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, including the five-volume Chumash Mesoras HaRav, the Siddur Mesorat HaRav, and many others as well.
