(Courtesy of Mosaica Press) One of the great Chassidic masters of the early 19th century, Rabbi Avraham Dov Ber Auerbach of Avritch — the Bat Ayin — was a disciple of some of the premier students of the maggid of Mezritch, and served for many decades as a rabbinic authority and Chasidic leader in various Ukrainian towns and cities. Ultimately, he settled in Eretz Yisrael, where he became a heroic and legendary leader of the Jewish community of Tzfat.

With each passing year, an ever-growing number of people discover the teachings of the Bat Ayin and receive tremendous inspiration from his deeply thoughtful lessons. Now, for the first time — in clear and annotated English — readers can delve into the deep and moving teachings of the Bat Ayin on the parshiyot and holidays, encountering a veritable guide to avodat Hashem.

“Rabbi Avraham Dov Auerbach of Avritch (was) a profound thinker and a singularly saintly neshamah … Until now, this masterpiece was inaccessible to the English-speaking community … ”

— Harav Michel Twerski, Grand Rabbi of Hornosteipel, shlita

“The merit of our rabbi, the author, whose lips continue to move through our study of this holy sefer, will certainly protect all those who learn this holy book … ”

— Harav Shraga Hager, Grand Rabbi of Kossov, shlita

“With abundant wisdom and understanding, the translator shares selections from this sefer to bring foundations (of Chasidut) to the English-speaking masses.”

— Harav Shmuel Kamenetsky, shlita
