A simple man from Jerusalem is the seventeenth book in the successful series of books "The great men of the nation for the children of Israel" - exemplary figures who have illuminated the path of the people of Israel in recent generations. "A simple man from Jerusalem", that's how Rabbi Elisha Vishlitsky used to call himself. And truly, his greatness was evident in his simplicity. Rabbi Elisha Vishlitsky taught Torah wherever he was invited, from the north to the south. He accompanied the Torah nuclei, and always came to help those who encountered difficulty and distress. Rabbi Elisha strengthened friends with a hug and a listening ear, and with his good manners and broad heart he was a model of morality and the way of the land. What did Elisha hint to his friends when they encountered no water in the Judean desert? Why did two soldiers approach to consult with Elisha when the depositor threatened punishment? Why did Elisha knock with a heavy hammer on the tent pegs of a soldier who did not stand up to guard? Why did Rabbi Elisha go around and drive for a long time on dangerous roads in the middle of a military operation? What did he do when he couldn't make it to a close student's wedding? What was Rabbi Elisha looking for in the garage when his car was working? And how did Rabbi Elisha manage to encourage residents of the bombed Sderot, shopkeepers in south Tel Aviv and a soldier during a military operation? Twenty-four stories, well crafted and beautifully illustrated, will bring you together with a wonderful and fascinating character that will light up your world and the world of your children for many years.
