Rabbi Zalman Sorotzkin
(1881 - 1966) Rabbi Zalman Sorotzkin was one of the stellar Jewish personalities in pre-war Poland and post-war Israel. As Rav of Lutzk, head of the Vaad Hayeshivos, and close confidant of Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzenski, he was at the center of the struggle to preserve Torah values and foster Torah education - first in the embattled Jewish life of the pre-Holocaust generation and then in the formative years of the Jewish state, when the foundations of a Torah society were being laid.
That was one aspect of this multifaceted giant. As the spiritual leader of a major Jewish community, he was a Torah scholar of world stature. And as an international Jewish leader, who sought ideas and policies not in popular trends but in the timeless wisdom of the Torah, he became renowned for his insights into the Scriptures. Weaving the richness of his life experience with his profound knowledge of the Talmud, Midrash, and Codes, he was able to show how the verses of the Torah provided guidance and insight for every situation.  
Oznaim LaTorah was his masterpiece. Into it he poured his massive intellect and wealth of accomplishment.
