Rare Sefer Kdushat
Levi Al Ha'Torah By Rabbi Levi Yitzchak from Berdichev, Lemberg, 1850. It
was written by The Berdichever Rabbi (1740-1810) with his interpretation on
the the Pentateuch. Printed in Hebrew Rashi script.
The Berdichever is one of the legendary figures of Chassidut, revered for his enthusiastic dedication to Torah and Mitzvot, but above all for his consuming love of God and his people. He became known as the defender of the people of Israel. He would argue with God, charging Him with being too stern a father to His children, pleading for an end to the long and cruel exile.
His work Kedushat Levi is a classic collection of chassidic thoughts arranged according to the weekly Torah portions; it includes a commentary on Avot, and an appendix containing a number of anecdotes that reflect his saintly life and his role as attorney for the defense of the Jewish people.
Rabbi Levi Yitzchak is one of the most popular and beloved figures in Jewish history. Born into a prominent rabbinical family, he studied with the famed author of the "Pri Megadim," was himself a great scholar and served as rabbi of a number of Polish communities.
