In this fascinating journey through the weekly parashah, Rabbi Dr. Jerry Hochbaum focuses on the theme of leadership. In addition to elucidating the Torah text with keen understanding, he also offers trenchant lessons about the Torah’s view of effective Jewish leadership that are clearly relevant to our own times.

“Dr. Jerry Hochbaum has given us a real gift. The innovative, insightful and inspiring divrei Torah on each parashah presented in this volume are devoted in particular to thoughts about the development and strengthening of Jewish leadership, which has been the focus of Dr. Hochbaum’s thinking and attention
for decades. Throughout this work, Dr. Hochbaum demonstrates exquisite sensitivity to the nuances of the biblical text, paying careful attention to the significance of each word of the Torah. I learned much from his thoughtful insights and often novel interpretations, and I have no doubt that every reader will
be greatly enriched by his ideas.”
