Abstract:

Generation after generation, members of the Soloveitchik family have constituted an integral and influencial part of traditional Judaism's learning aristocracy, men who combined superb erudition, profound analysis, and leadership qualities which drew hundreds and thousands of the best and brightest to them.

Among the scions of this illustrious family was the man known familiary to thousands as "the Rav," Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, who served for more than forty years as the preeminent authority of centrist Orthodoxy, and whose thoughts and teachings continue to exert great influence through his writings, and the work of many generations of disciples he taught at Yeshiva University.

This memoir by his sister, Shulamit Soloveitchik Meiselman, describes the life of the family of Rabbi Moses Soloveitchik before they emigrated to the United States in order to allow Rabbi Moses to assume the post at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Rabbinical School of Yeshiva College until his life was tragically cut short and he was succeeded by his son, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik.

She also recounts the story of the family's antecedents, its connection with Rabbi Hayyim of Volozhin and the Volozhiner Yeshiva, as well as those of her mother's family, the Feinsteins, of whom Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, was an eminent representative.
