who brought thousands of Jews back to Torah.
- Day after day. Week after week. Year after year. Neshamah
after neshamah - Rabbi Meir Schuster was at the Kosel, the
Central Bus Station, the Hebrew University campus, looking for
people who were searching for meaning - and bringing them to
places where they would find it.
- He was the most unlikely of outreach professionals. He was
shy, tongue-tied, inarticulate, and decidedly "uncool." And yet,
more than almost anyone, he brought Jews - thousands, perhaps
tens of thousands - back to their Torah heritage.
A Tap on the Shoulder brings us the stories (so many stories!)
of the young men and women who traded their backpacks for
Torah. It has been carefully researched and beautifully written by
Yonoson Rosenblum, a noted columnist and the author of many
landmark biographies of great Torah leaders. At the same time,
it brings to life a magical era, the decades when searching youth
found meaning and the "baal teshuvah movement" was born.
A Tap on the Shoulder shows us how one man - with absolute
dedication, boundless caring, and almost unbelievable siyata
d'Shmaya - can change the world. One neshamah at a time.
