The Ohr Hahaim… the Rashash… the Hida… Hacham Ezra Attia… Ben Ish Hai… the Sdei Hemed and Baba Sali. These are only a few of the great hachamim who are the legacy of Sephardic Jewry. They were a stronghold of Torah for the Jews of their times, both Sephardic and Ashkenazic; yet, how much do we know about them?
Finally, here is a wondrous, scrupulously researched collection of over one hundred stories about these revered hachamim. It brings their rich, spiritual legacy to life, providing inspiration to readers from all backgrounds.
This is the birthright of Sephardim; it is prosperity far greater than material wealth. It is a heritage of greatness in Torah and mitzvot, and we must be proud of it and cherish it forever.
This is a book for the full spectrum of readers: Sephardim and Ashkenazim, young and old, educators and students, parents and children. A Legacy of Leaders is the only book of its kind to date, and it is destined to become a classic – both in the classroom and at home.
