As Rov Soloveitchik was leaving 770 - I was next to him, there was a man holding him by each arm, I believe he wasn't well - someone asked him what he thought. I never saw a human being light up with so much excited joy as the Rov as he tried to express his approval by exclaiming the names of gem stones - I don't recall exactly - but, he said something like, "like diamonds & gold!" I'll never forget that.
Dr. Arnie Gotfryd, PhD, bridges modern science and traditional faith by walking us through the Biblical Patriarch’s cognitive journey as he analyzes nature to discover the underlying unity of all phenomena, the One we call G-d. Abraham is portrayed as an ecosystems analyst, a philosophical pioneer. His gift to mankind was ethical monotheism, an achievement accomplished by the power of reason, and unshakable faith in the ultimate Cause.
