Over the past seventy years the Jewish nation has seen a truly remarkable development, the multitudes of Jews returning to their roots. Our leaders and rabbanim work tirelessly to teach these Baalei Teshuva and to guide them on their journey. And now b”h a new sefer on kiruv has been completed that will hopefully help these anshei chayil continue their holy work.
The sefer, titled “Umekareiv Biyamin”, written by Rabbi Chaim Avraham Zakutinsky, is an in depth analysis of the most commonly asked questions posed to kiruv rabbanim. Some examples are, inviting shabbos guests when they will be driving to the meal, counting non-observant Jews for a minyan, and Reform marriage in halacha. The author has received letters of praise from leading gedolim of America including Rabbi Rueven Feinstein shlit”a, Rabbi Yisroel Belsky shlit”a and Rabbi Noach Oelbaum shlit”a. Rabbi Belsky writes that this work can serve as an invaluable tool to all those who are working on helping Jews become more observant in keeping Torah and mitzvos.
The author is the son of Rabbi Yehuda Zakutinsky shlit”a, one of the pioneers of the kiruv movement and a leading authority on Jewish outreach. He currently is the director of the outreach organization Hashevaynu, based in Queens, New York.
