This wonderful collection is sure to be a welcome and much perused guest on many thousands of desks, tables, and library shelves. It contains several brief discourses for every sidrah and festival of the year, collected from a wide array of the most prominent rabbis and teachers in Orthodox life.

The table of contents reads like an honor roll of thinkers, preachers, and writers, and all of them have contributed the cream of their sermons and essays. Every selection is relatively brief and easy to read, and all of them are rich in ideas. Included in the book are a wealth of insights and interpretations from Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik zt”l, as well as anecdotes and applications to modern life.

The purpose of this collection, published by the Orthodox Union, is to enrich Sabbath tables, of course, but it will also be a valuable source of ideas for rabbis, teachers, group leaders -- for anyone who needs and enjoys Torah thought. Edited by Rabbi Bertram Leff, assisted by Yisroel Epstein, this volume succeeds in tapping into rich veins of talent and community leadership. Its editors and authors know what works and what readers need. Even a cursory glance through its pages will convince the reader that it will be a constant, welcome, and useful companion.

The editors write in their Preface, “It is our prayer that this collection of divrei Torah will inspire all who read it. It is our sincerest wish that these Torah Insights will add meaning to their daily lives and further their spiritual quests.” Without a doubt, the editors’ wish will be fulfilled.
