ברוך דיין האמת

It is with great sadness that we must inform you of the passing of Rav Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz zt"l.

The impact that Rabbi Steinsaltz had in spreading limmud Torah, enhancing the understanding of our texts and religion, bringing Jews closer to their God and to their faith, cannot be overstated.

Rabbi Steinsaltz's translations and commentaries of Tanakh, Mishna, Gemara, Rambam, and Tanya placed as perhaps the most prolific commentator of Jewish texts in history, drawing comparison to Rashi.  His countless other works on Jewish thought, Hassidut, philosophy, parshanut, and more have touched the souls of thousands and have already taken their place among the core texts of modern Jewish thought.

We are proud to have been partners with and inspired by, this most humble of talmidei hahamim and hope to continue sharing his vast wisdom with the world.

May the Almighty comfort his family among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem
