Ha-Rav Shlomo Aviner's English Books Available from Yeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim


1.    Short & Sweet - Text Message Responsa of Ha-Rav Shlomo Aviner Shlit"a
More than 200 on an average day, 500 per day before a holiday, and 800 per day during times of war…
This is the number of text message questions received by Ha-Rav Shlomo Aviner Shlit"a. With unwavering dedication to the Nation of Israel, an amazing breadth of Torah knowledge, and an incredible gift for brevity, Rav Aviner personally responds to each and every question – whether with a prompt and concise answer, or, in the case of more complex issues, with the suggestion that the questioner call to discuss the matter in depth.
Short and Sweet is but a small sampling of Rav Aviner's never-ending stream of text messages – a window into a new genre of Q&A, borne of modern technology but firmly rooted in traditional rabbinic responsa. Like the millions of little dots that comprise a pointillist painting, these individual responsum coalesce to form a meaningful picture: one that depicts our relationship to the Nation of Israel, our attachment to the Land of Israel, and our love for the State of Israel, Tzahal and the Torah of Israel.
