Dear Friends,

I feel privileged and humbled to present this new monumental book describing the life and scholarship of one of the most accomplished, and greatest Rabbi of the modern era, Hacham Ovadia Yosef. 

Maran – The Life & Scholarship of Hacham Ovadia Yosef takes a look at one of the most influential and beloved rabbis of the past century,whose life’s work has altered the course of Sephardic society in Israel and across the globe, and whose leadership has benefited all of world Jewry, Ashkenazim and Sephardim alike.

Hacham Ovadia was many things: an extraordinary posek, an engaging teacher, a sensitive and devoted Bet Din judge, a political powerbroker, and a rabbi tirelessly dedicated to the Jewish People. This book focuses on his life, his mission in restoring the primacy of halachah among Sephardic communities, his infinite ahavat Yisrael, and his vast scholarship, brilliant halachic rulings, and the halachic approach he developed and promulgated. Much of this book is based on Hacham Ovadia’s own words in his lectures and writings.

This work is a product of years of extensive research conducted by myself and an exceptional team, who combed through Hacham Ovadia Yosef’s fifty-three published works. The autobiographical information, anecdotes, and opinions of Hacham Ovadia, which were unearthed among his halachic responsa, have become the heart of this book. In this way we present to you a unique understanding of this larger-than-life figure and his far-reaching accomplishments.

Hacham Ovadia was a remarkable blend of scholarly genius and human sensitivity; boldness and humility; courage and compassion. We have included inspirational vignettes, excerpts from key lectures, scholarly discussions on core issues, and many actual halachic rulings, so that every reader, at every level, will gain inspiration from this exceptional sage.

This beautifully written and fascinating book on Hacham Ovadia’s multifaceted life and accomplishments will both inform and inspire you, from the beginning until the very last page.

It has been said “a man’s pen is the mirror of his soul.” If this is true, then Hacham Ovadia Yosef’s soul was one that was filled with purity, immense love of G-d, His Torah, and His people, and a powerful longing for a connection with the Almighty and the final redemption of the Jewish people.

May the memory and merit of Hacham Ovadia Yosef A”H be a source of blessing to all of us and to the entire Jewish nation, .אמן 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Yehuda Azoulay
