The Illustrated Life and Teachings of  HaRav Avraham Yitzhak HaKohen Kook

by Tzvi Fishman

Perhaps the most influential Rabbi of modern times, Rabbi Kook taught the world to see the Divine Providence guiding the Zionist Movement and the return of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel. A master of all disciplines of Torah, the revealed and the esoteric, as well as an extraordinary Jewish philosopher and gifted poet, he was known for his towering love for all people, a love which often brought him into painful conflict with fellow Jews who lacked his all-encompassing vision. In addition to the dramatic presentation of Rabbi Kook’s life, told in a fluent style which will enrich readers of all ages, the book is filled with Rabbi Kook incomparable writings on Torah, T’shuva, Eretz Yisrael, and Israel’s Redemption in our time. Predicting the difficulties and setbacks which would arise along the road to Redemption, Rabbi Kook believed with total faith that a great holy light would shine forth from Zion in a gradually unfolding fashion, just as dawn emerges out from the darkness of night. The many wonderful illustrations which accompany the lively biography capture Rabbi Kook’s revolutionary insights in a glance without having to rely on long and difficult commentaries. The 270 page illustrated biography “Above the Stream” is a welcome addition to every Jewish home and library.
