Publisher's Summary

Rabbi Berel Wein, Rabbi and historian, writer and lecturer, kashrut supervisor and rosh yeshiva, looks back at the dramatic events of his life. From religious controversies and educational dilemmas, through challenges of community building and synagogue politics, to encounters with great rabbis and travels throughout the Jewish world, Rabbi Wein's tale is one of Jewish leadership in 20th-century America, at once highly public and deeply personal. With great humor and disarming honesty, Teach Them Diligently tells the story of the trials and the triumphs, the struggles and the joys of a life devoted to Jewish community service.

An Amazing Life Story

I had listened to Rabbi Wein's history lectures, but knew little of his life. This remarkable autobiography records the incredible ups and downs, betrayals and friendships, defeats and triumphs of a truly blessed individual. I learned much and will definitely listen again. Thank you Rabbi Wein.

Fantastic!

This book was my companion on a few long driving trips. Rabbi Wein's personal story bridges the European Jewish immigrants of the early 1900's all the way through the present day. Combining history, humor, advice, it was engaging and interesting throughout. It had enough enriching detail to paint colorful pictures of places and events, without being either vague or overly tedious. Highly recommended!
