Rabbi Ari Storch Publishes Sefer on Zevachim


bais-hamikdoshJust as the daf yomi cycle is reaching Masechta Zevachim this coming Friday, November 12, Rabbi Ari Storch, a member of Ner Israel’s (Baltimore, MD) Kollel Avodas Levi has released a ground-breaking sefer on that Masechta, Tiferes Aryeh.In addition to learning in the Kollel, Rabbi Storch serves as Rabbi of Ohr Simcha Congregation. A native Baltimorean, he attended Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim/Talmudical Academy and earned semichah from Ner Israel. In addition to his semichah, Rabbi Storch has earned three rabbinic degrees, including a doctorate, from Ner Israel.

In the evenings, Rabbi Storch heads the beis medrash at Bnai Jacob Shaarei Zion, and he also serves as the Rabbi for the extremely popular “Ask the Rabbi” on this site. He has obtained kabbalah for safrus from Rabbi Heinemann, shlita and is now working on publication of his third sefer.

Tiferes Aryeh on Zevachim offers a unique perspective that is invaluable for anyone studying this magnificent masechta. This work is an easily understood and comprehensive analysis of the entirety of Zevachim. In order to aid the reader, Tiferes Aryeh has been divided into two parts. The first section offers short but insightful ideas that help the reader gain broader perspective of the Gemara, Rashi and Tosefos. This part is based mainly on textual analysis, but also compares the concepts found in Zevachim with those found throughout Shas and the classic Meforshim.

In addition to helping elucidate the basic ideas, the reader will also gain a new and refreshing perspective to many of the wonderful concepts throughout Zevachim. The second part of Tiferes Aryeh is comprised of fifty-seven essays. Each one delves deep into the heart of the subject matter and with its piercing analysis offers a the reader a complete understanding of the subject being discussed. This section focuses on understanding the underlying themes and differing styles of approach that the classic Meforshim took when writing their commentaries to this Masechta. The reader can easily search through this sefer by topic or by the daf.

This sefer has been reviewed and has received glowing letters of approbations from gedolim of our generation, Rav Aharon Feldman, shlita (Ner Yisroel), Rav Dovid Cohen, shlita (Gevul Yaavetz), the Novominsker Rebbe, shlita, Rav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg, shlita, and Rav Yisroel Neuman, shlita (BMG, Lakewood). HaRav Hagaon Asher Weiss, shlita has called it “an amazing sefer.” It is also included in Agudath Israel of America’s recommended list of sefarim for daf yomi.

The Baltimore community is thrilled to have had this wonderful sefer produced by one of their very own.
