Description
 
What Happened?

In a little over a century, masses of Jews throughout the world discarded the beliefs they had cherished for millennia. Orthodoxy  seemed doomed to extinction.

And then ...

After a century of losing battles with the forces of assimilation, as well as the horrors of the Holocaust, Torah Judaism underwent an almost-miraculous resurgence, prospering in a way that no one could ever have imagined.

Nobody brings Jewish history to vivid life like Rabbi Berel Wein. In Struggle, Challenges and Tradition Rabbi Wein takes us on a grand tour of world Jewry from the years 1820 - 1940. He explores the remorseless battles and the forces ranged for and against Torah observance. He discovers which strategies helped defend and rebuild Torah life -- and which failed.

Struggle, Challenges and Tradition is a fascinating work of history -- and a vital book for anyone who cares about Torah Jewry's future.
