Learning From Our Leaders
From his wondrous birth to the many times throughout his life that he was miraculously saved, the Chida - Rav Chaim Yosef Dovid Azoulay - was no ordinary person. A tremendous tzaddik and talmid chacham of great stature and nobility, he was chosen to be the shaliach of the Jews in Chevron. For this task, he had to leave his family for years on end and travel all across Europe, collecting money for his poor brethren in Eretz Yisrael while inspiring Jews in every community that he visited.
In The Story of the Chida, geared specifically for junior readers, you will be fascinated by the Chida's greatness, as well as his colorful life and travels. Although nearly all of the Chida's days were filled with adventure and various dangers, they were focused primarily on kiddush Shem Shamayim and devotion to Hashem's Torah and mitzvos. Be inspired by the holiness of this unique gadol!
