BY THE time Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz, 80, arrives at the Steinsaltz Center in Jerusalem, his son Rabbi Menachem (Meni) Even-Israel, 43, has already begun his work day, supervising the various book projects that are under development. By 6 p.m., when Meni has gone home, the senior Rabbi Steinsaltz is still hard at work, proofreading and annotating texts. Sadly, he is unable to speak due to the aftereffects of a stroke suffered a year and half ago. However, he remains deeply involved in his life’s work.

For Meni, the eldest of Steinsaltz and his wife Sarah’s three children, managing the Steinsaltz Center is no less a labor of love.
