Upcoming – Maran: The Life and Times of Hacham Ovadia Yosef

Maran – The Life and Scholarship of Hacham Ovadia Yosef a”h takes a look at one of the most influential, revered, accomplished and loved rabbis of the past century. His personal work which he began before the age of twenty, and which gained momentum over his ninety-three years, has altered the course of Sephardic society, scholarship, and changed numerous facets of Sephardic Jewry. Encyclopedic Torah knowledge, fearless conviction, compassion and concern for each and every Jew, tireless energy, clarity of thought and expression – it is this combination of outstanding qualities that has made Hacham Ovadia Yosef the most influential rabbinic figure of our generation and one of the most influential rabbis in hundreds of years. The vastness of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s Torah knowledge is unmatched, having committed to memory much of the entire corpus of Torah literature.

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef ushered in a new era of a return to Sephardic roots and a renewed commitment to the magnificent, millennia-old spiritual heritage and legacy of Sephardic Jewry. Perhaps the most significant quality that has made Rabbi Ovadia Yosef such an esteemed and beloved leader was his remarkable ability to relate and connect to the masses. Hacham Ovadia was many things: a scholar, a teacher, a rabbinical judge, a rabbi at the service of his congregation, and a political powerbroker. It would be impossible to examine all these facets thoroughly in one volume. This work is not on the focus on the hacham’s political involvement, although there is a great focus on his political party Shas. Nonetheless the centrality of this book is focused on his life and scholarship. This work is a product of numerous years of extensive research conducted by the author the Yehuda Azoulay and other scholars who have contributed immeasurably to this tome. Every single publication that has ever been written about Hacham Ovadia Yosef from the entire spectrum has been studied thoroughly combing Hacham Ovadia Yosef’s fifty-three published works. The biographical information, anecdotes, and opinions that were unearthed are the creativeness of this book.

Hacham Ovadia was a remarkable blend of scholarly genius and human sensitivity, boldness and humility, courage, and compassion. This book shall be a great form of inspiration, education, and ultimately a sense of appreciation of this exceptional unique rabbinical figure.
