Spirit of Nobilityis a selection of Rabbi Dr. Aaron Levine’s sermons on the weekly Torah portion, transcribed from his manuscripts dating from 1982 to 2011.
A renowned authority on Jewish business ethics, Rabbi Dr. Aaron Levine, of blessed memory, was also a distinguished pulpit rabbi. In his sermons he would urge his congregants to seize nobility, to leap toward greater achievement in religious observance and refinement of character. In his personal conduct, he was the very embodiment of those ideals. The sermons offer original insights into the Torah and haftarah readings and present novel and scholarly applications of the weekly portion to contemporary political, social, and economic issues. These stirring messages of faith, Jewish unity, and aspiration for redemption remain as relevant today as when they were first delivered.
