Rav Chaim Soloveitchik - Chidushei HaRambam

By Rav Elisha Friedman

Rav Chaim Solovetichik was one of the greatest Talmudic commentators of all time. His works are studied in-depth in all yeshivot today and he is widely considered the father of modern Talmudic analysis. The only work he wrote was his chiddushim (insights) on the Rambam's halachic rulings, which is considered a classic of Talmudic analysis. But the complexity of the material and the analysis make it difficult for many to study. We are making available audio presentations of his writings by Rabbi Elisha Friedman of Harrisburg, PA, to help make his Torah insights more accessible.
