beloved author Meir Uri Gottesman, eighty-year-old
Leibel Stretiner has a cataract operation and is given
new lenses. Unbeknownst to him, though, these lenses
were ground by a Jerusalem tzaddik, which makes them
very atypical. To Leibel's shock and dismay, he suddenly
finds, upon entering shul after his surgery, that he can
now read the aveiros that everyone has done, inscribed
right on their foreheads!
- And this is just the beginning...
- Having been handed a unique Heavenly assignment,
Leibel has no choice but to embark on a spiritual
journey that he never would have dreamed would be his
to take. His holy mission brings him from quiet Toronto
to bustling Yerushalayim, to the Kosel, to the lesser-
known Little Kosel, and finally, to a third wall, the "wall
of fire." But all along, Leibel is in great danger, for there
is someone out there who desires nothing more than to
- Like Gottesman's other books, Wall of Fire is soaked
with yiras Shamayim, ahavas Yisrael, and love for Eretz
Yisrael. The story spans lands and centuries, and is rich
with many characters from Jewish history, like Elkanah
and Chanah Haneviah, Eli Hakohen, King Achav, Rabbi
Yehudah Halevi, the Baal Shem Tov, and Reb Uri of
Strelisk. To read Wall of Fire is to enter a holy, mystical
world, one that will set your neshamah on fire!
