Subject: A new book on the Vilna Gaon just out.
A. Morgenstern, Redemption Through Return (Ge'ulah Rederekh Ha-teva) -
Vilna
Gaon's Disciples in Eretz -Israel 1800-1840 (Hebrew) 466 pages, Jerusalem
1997
This fascinating book is an updated collection of Dr. Arye Morgenstern's (
of the Dinur Institute, Hebrew University) research of the influence of the
Gaon of Vilna and his students on the settlement of Eretz Yisrael in the
early nineteenth century.
As such it is not a book about the Vilna Gaon.
The book is in Hebrew.
