Rabbi Lord Sacks Z’L (who prolonged his life by a year beyond what the doctors could do, by pre-recording a year of Divrei Torah). He is a baki of connecting sugyot to world philosophy and history.June 17, 2022 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #2098050RebYid613Participant

Avira > you’ve seen rabbi sacks go through gemara sugyos
I was not sure whether I should put the reference, I should have heeded Chofetz Chaim’s psak not to praise someone publicly, unless he is a universally recognized tzadik, as there will always be someone finding fault… But I figure out we are doing it here for the sake of learning.
To answer your question, I never met R Sacks Z’L. I did not search videos for him learning Gemora sugyos, because I was interested in other issues that he covers, so I can’t comment. As a reference, not as a proof, I heard from very traditional Rabonim commenting that R Sacks had an amazing ability to connect to modern intellectuals (These Rabbis did not comment on his knowledge of Rishonim).
Your concern would be valid if I limit myself to learning R Sacks essays exclusively, but I did not. I can assure you that I read R Avigdor Miller Z’L also (and listened on tape borrowed from kollel before we had divrei Torah online).July 1, 2022 11:50 am at 11:50 am #2102347
What is the story with posthumous divrei torah? Are they reprints of old ones? quotes from seforim? Or thoughts of the current generation? I picked up latest Toras Avigdor and found an interesting and relevant discussion of Trotsky, but then the mehaber says that he thinks Trotsky was _probably_ killed in Mexico and his last moment was “with a gun to his temple” – and still did not do teshuva. The Rav was 30+ years old when Trotsky was killed, so he surely knew that the guy was killed in Mexico and with an axe. I am sure he made a couple of jokes about it. so, who is actually writing this?
And it made me think that Trotsky was killed in such a sudden way to maybe prevent him from attempting teshuva?July 1, 2022 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #2102378GadolhadorahParticipant
Eckstein: You may not like the idea of a woman writing divrei torah but her Sefaria commentaries are up there with those of Toras Avigdor and other mainstream works on the weekly parsha
