For years, Jews all over the world have been inspired and
enlightened by the beautiful stories and profound ideas of Rabbi Shalom Schwadron, the Maggid of Yerushalaim. Even after his unfortunate
passing, we have enjoyed his exciting stories, as they continue to live on through the voice of his famous disciple, Rabbi Paysach Krohn.
Now, for the
very first time in English, we will be treated to a collection of stories --not only those that he told, but those that are told about him, those that reveal his very essence. These stories, originally compiled in Hebrew by his grandson, Rabbi Yaakov Aryeh Ariel, describe Rabbi SchwadronÆs painful youth, his personal relationships with talmidim, and the uncompromising love ofTorah that he embodied.
Through this anecdotal biography, Voice of
Truth, we can understand what contributed to the Maggids
ability to inspire the multitudes of people that he still continues to affectû years after his death.
