"The Essence of Emunah" by Rav Gamliel Rabinovitch in English

Although I know this is belated, I wanted to let (those of you who don't already know about it) know about a new English translation of Rav Gamliel Rabinovitch's sefer Tiv Ha'emunah, which came out in the fall. It's called The Essence of Emunah: A collection of thoughts, insights and essays from the writings and teachings of [Rav] Gamliel Rabbinovitch. It was translated by Reb Dovid Vatch.

An adam gadol I know personally told me that he feels that it is one of the best seforim out there in either English or Hebrew on the subject of Emunah, both mitzad the content and because of who wrote it (Reb Gamliel) who truly lives every word of what is written in the sefer.

I hope to read it at some point as well but I wanted to let the chevra know about it.

Kol tuv!

I agree that this is the best contemporary sefer on emunah out there. Anyone that has spent time with Rav Gamliel Rabinovitch shlita knows that he doesn't just write about emunah, he lives it. You can openly see on him the Ahavas Hashem and Ahavas Yisroel for every Yid.

Based on your article, I went out and ordered the book online, and God willing it will be here before Shabbos, giving me something to read. A six hundred page book on Emunah? Yes Please!

Gevaldig!

I passed on your comment to R' Dovid Vatch's good friend, the adam gadol I quoted above. Yasher koach for giving your feedback.

I'm happy it was available and in-stock. That's why I used Eichlers for the link.

I hear that it's out of print but that Reb Gamliel really wanted it to be available so it's being reprinted so it should be back in stores in about 2 months.

I found it a little bit cheaper from Zberman.com or something like that, not sure of the exact address.
