Rav Joseph B. Soloveitchik

HaRav Joseph B. Soloveitchik ztz”l, affectionately known as “the Rav,” was the scion of a legendary rabbinic family, the great-grandson of his namesake, the Beis HaLevi. Rav Soloveitchik was renowned as a Talmudist and philosopher, celebrated for his insightful synthesis of Torah ethos into our post-modern world. As rosh yeshiva of RIETS, the Rav ordained nearly 2,000 rabbis over almost half a century. The Rav passed away in 1993 at the age of 90. Many of the Rav’s works are available from OU Press, http://www.ou.org/oupress. These recordings of the Rav on OU Torah were made available by Rabbi David Etengoff (www.reparashathashavuah.org), Director of Educational Technology at Magen David Yeshivah in Brooklyn, a student of the Rav.
