The Nesivos Shalom is a sefer which enjoys enormous popularity in every nook and cranny of the Orthodox world - Litvish, Yeshivish, Right-wing, Centrist, Shtreimel and Kippah Serugah. The Slonimer Rebbe zt"l seems to have found the perfect mix of passionate and inspiring Chassidus, and Mussar that speaks directly to the individual. As a seasoned leader, he understood people with all their contemporary faults and is not afraid to directly confront issues of failure, lack of connectedness, depression, etc., incorporating even the negatives into a roadmap that leads inevitably to a higher place for the person seeking it.

Each week, an essay will present some of the themes from Nesivos Shalom on Chumash or from the other works of the Rebbe emerging from his treatment of the special days of the year including Shabbos, Chanukah, Purim, Pesach, Shavuos, Sukkos, the Three Weeks, Elul, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

If you'd like, you can see the list of all archived Nesivos Shalom articles on the Parsha and Special Days, or the index to all archived Torah Portion articles.
