New Book Now Available: "Igrois Pinky"


At long last, I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book: Igrois Pinky.

Igrois Pinky is a collection of my renowned responsa ("Ask Rabbi Pinky"), topical commentaries, and other brilliant rabbinical writings and insights. There are also new introductions and a new section of Giveldik Toirah thoughts developed by my esteemed colleague, the RABAM, who heads the San Francisco Branch of Yeshivas Chipass Emmess.

As you may be aware, the publication of the new book was delayed by several months. While it was largely ready in time for Purim, my publisher, the RAGU, was very focused on other commitments. Specifically, he has been working selflessly to support the re-election campaign of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, and clearly, all of his efforts have borne fruit. In addition, he has been counting his federal bailout money: His company received billions of dollars in bailouts funds, only the money was transferred in pennies, and he was charged with manually ensuring that all of the funds were properly received and moved into the basement.

Please use my new Sefer, "Igrois Pinky", to fulfill the Mitzvah of "Vehigisa Boi Yomam VaLayla" -- "You should engage in it day and night". It will make you a better person, and a better Jew (or Gentile -- my Yeshivah does not discriminate). You are also encouraged to buy copies for all of your friends and donate copies to your local shuls.

As always, your thoughts and comments are welcome. I can be contacted at
