Following the success of his bestselling first volumes Portraits of Greatness and Portraits of Majesty, Rabbi Mattis Y. Goldberg’s now provides us with yet another fascinating glimpse into the lives of Gedolei Yisroel. In Portraits of Leadership, his photographs of Ashkenazi, Sephardi and Chassidic gedolim enable all of us to fulfill the teaching, “And your eyes shall see your Torah teachers” (Yeshayahu 30:20).
Rabbi Goldberg’s astute observations also bring us the stories behind the pictures — always perceptive and always inspiring. Reading this book is uplifting, like experiencing a degree of personal contact with leaders of Klal Yisroel.
