Maran: The Life and Scholarship of 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
well-known Sephardic author Yehuda Azoulay and his 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.
