Rav Chaim Solovetichik was one of the greatest Talmudic commentators of all time. His works are studied in-depth in all yeshivot today and he is widely considered the father of modern Talmudic analysis. The only work he wrote was his chiddushim (insights) on the Rambam's halachic rulings, which is considered a classic of Talmudic analysis. But the complexity of the material and the analysis make it difficult for many to study. These audio presentations of his writings by Rabbi Elisha Friedman are intended to help make his Torah insights more accessible.

Excellent Shiurim

Clear and concise presentation of the “steps” of Rav Chaim’s insights…Wonderfully done. The advertisements in the middle are a definite “marketing fail” as I would hazard a guess that 0% of those listening to these shiurim are McDonald’s customers.
