By Rav Yitzchok Alster
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER presents a comprehensive and in-depth study, revealing the secrets and sanctity of Pesach in a new light.
THIS LIGHT, the light from the ohr ha’ganuz (the hidden light) was originally revealed in the sifrei Maharal. After centuries of neglect, it was rekindled for the Torah world by the appearance of the famous maamarim of Hagaon Harav Yitzchak Hutner, zt”l, and recorded in his sefarim, Pachad Yitzchak.
It is said that the Maharal had the keys to Chazal, and Rav Hutner had the keys to the understanding of the Maharal, not to exclude his uncanny insights into the words of the Ramban, the Gra, and many others.
Today, forty years after his passing - the years necessary to understand the mind and ways of the Rav (“adatai d’rabbai”) - his inspiration has brought about a crescendo of interest in his Torah, the maamarim. The light he brought to the world continues to shine brightly.
