To Stand & Serve: On Being a Kohen; Essays in Memory of Marc Weinberg
What is kehuna? The term is often translated as “priesthood,” and the Jewish kohanimare indeed charged with ministering God’s Temple, yet kehuna signifiesmuch more than that. A kohen is a representative of God on earth, and this designation thus carries moral and educational dimensions in addition to its ritual aspects. This book portrays a holistic view of the essence of kehuna and how kohanim (and non-kohanim) can live up to its ideals.
To Stand and Serve is dedicated to the memory of Marc Weinberg z”l, a man who lived the ideals of kehuna, and truly represented God in this world until his tragic and untimely departure. The volume contains contributions from mentors – Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks and the rashei yeshiva of Yeshivat Har Etzion: Rav Yehuda Amital and Rav Aharon Lichtenstein z”l and Rav Mosheh Lichtenstein shlit”a – friends, and students.
