Rabbi Berel Wein, a rare practicing Zionist among prominent American rabbis, made aliya in 1997..
The mishnaic compilation Ethics of the Fathers shares this advice from the sage Shammai: “Make your Torah study fixed, say little and do much, and receive everyone with a cheerful countenance.” Shammai’s aphorism seems to effectively describe the approach of Rabbi Berel Wein.As an autobiography of a man who has accomplished a remarkable amount in his 80 years, Teach Them Diligently is a surprisingly slim volume. Without sacrificing depth – or the reader’s attention – Wein has managed to provide fascinating and honest insights into his career in Jewish communal life, while carefully avoiding anything that could be construed as inflammatory.
