Torah from the Years of Wrath, 1939-1943 (Draft 9 14 2016)

Fellow Scholars and Students of History!

I’m busy working on my next book, and I’m really enjoying the writing process. I’ve been working on this research for over a decade, even wrote a 500-page manuscript before deciding to start over with an entirely new approach.

This book is on the Holocaust writings of Rabbi Kalonymus Kalmish Shapiro, known to his followers as the Piaseczno Rebbe.  His most well-known work, the subject of this book, is Holy Fire (Aish Kodesh).  I also recorded a biographical lecture a while ago, you can find it here.

Here’s the link to the first two chapters.  As an experiment, I uploaded the rough draft to I would be delighted to receive helpful comments from interested readers. Please email me at

Thank you!
