Product Description
  • It is only a few hours since the Kosel, the Western Wall, was liberated ...and Yisroel Gellis is there.
  • Hundreds of Sifrei Torah have to be smuggled out of Iraq and into the holy city and Yisroel Gellis is there.
  • The Arab television star discovers his grandmother was Jewish and wants to give her a proper Jewish burial and Yisroel Gellis is there.

Rabbi Yisroel Gellis knows Yerushalayim like few people on this earth. He knows its mazes of tiny streets, the tales hidden behind its stone walls. A tenth-generation Yerushalmi, his family had close ties with the great men of the city, its famed Torah leaders, its hidden tzaddikim, and its simple Jews. (Is there such a thing as a "simple”" Yerushalmi Jew?)

Renowned as the "Ish Yerushalayim," the "Man of Jerusalem," Rabbi Gellis is also a journalist, radio broadcaster, and historian. And he is a person who loves adventure, rappelling into deep caves to discover their dusty secrets, dodging Jordanian bullets during the Six Day War, jumping into the choppy Mediterranean waters (and falling in!) to broadcast his radio show.

Bestselling author Rabbi Nachman Seltzer combines his brilliant storytelling talents with Rabbi Gellis's unusual life and immense knowledge of all things Yerushalmi, to give us a book as exciting, unexpected and multi-faceted as Yerushalayim itself.

Yerushalayim is in the heart of every Jew. Now we can get to know the wonders of our beloved city, in a unique and wonderful way.
