HE LIVED A PURE, humble life, learning Torah constantly in his room, hardly eating or sleeping. Yet he became renowned as one of the greatestA gedolimA of our day, influencing hundreds of thousands the world over. Who wasA Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman zt"l?
Roshei yeshivahA would meet with him, to receive guidance, inspiration, and direction.A Roshei kollelimA would consult with him regarding all the details of their learning schedules, acceptance policies, and more. School principals followed his directives to the letter. And thousands of regular Jews came, too, for aA pesak, advice, or aA berachah.A His opinion wasA daas Torah, and his wisdom and insight inevitably left his petitioners open-mouthed.
Many of the myriads who thronged the streets of Bnei Brak on erev Chanukah to accompany theA gadol hadorA to his final resting place never had the privilege of meetingA Rav ShteinmanA face-to-face, and most were not hisA talmidim.A But every person there was brokenhearted at the loss of their spiritual leader.

It also includes a biographical overview of the life of the Rosh Yeshivah zt"l, and a collection of beautiful photos that help us enter his holy sanctum and remain inspired long after.
