Carrying On The Teachings Of Rabbi Avigdor Miller

Simchas Hachaim Publishing Seeks Children’s Titles. Simchas Hachaim Publishing (SHP) is preparing a line of children’s books inspired by Rabbi Miller’s teachings. The publishers invite all authors to submit children’s manuscripts (or queries).

SHP is the official publisher of Rabbi Avigdor Miller’s books and lectures. It is a division of the Rabbi Avigdor Miller Legacy Library, under the direction of Yeshiva Gedolah Bais Yisroel and the Miller family. SHP previously has published Career of Happiness and the bestseller A Divine Madness. It has also produced the first three volumes of the ongoing Ohr Avigdor series on Chovos Halevavos, including the most recent, Shaar Avodas Elokim, released last month. Many other new works are in progress.

Aryeh Zev Narrow, executive director of SHP, says the organization welcomes submissions for children of any age, from any author, including authors who have not previously been published. “Rabbi Miller’s inspiring lessons in bechinah [discovering Hashem in the world] and simchas hachaim will infuse young readers with a zeal for life, Torah, and avodas Hashem,” Mr. Narrow stated. “We welcome submissions from any author who can adapt these lessons for today’s youth.”

Teleconference with Rav Shmuel Miller Warmly Received. Students of Rabbi Avigdor Miller were delighted to join the Rabbi Avigdor Miller Legacy Library’s inaugural Torah teleconference by Rabbi Shmuel Miller. The library’s new teleconference series presents popular speakers on topics inspired by Rabbi Miller books and lectures.

Just in time for Purim, the rosh yeshiva Rav Shmuel Miller elaborated on two sources of simcha. One when we connect with Hashem and a second when we see the vengeance of Hashem which was evident by the miracle of Purim. The free teleconference was held Sunday, March 2. The call attracted listeners from across the country, including California, Minnesota, and Tennessee. The rosh yeshiva’s words were warmly received by all. Future monthly teleconferences are planned.

The Rabbi Avigdor Miller Legacy Library disseminates the teachings of Rabbi Avigdor Miller through its Simchas Hachaim Publishing division and other innovative programs that spread Rabbi Miller’s uplifting approach to Torah, life, and serving Hashem to an ever-widening audience. The library was formed in 2011 by Yeshiva Gedolah Bais Yisroel, which was cofounded in 1983 by Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt’l, and, ybcl, his son, Rabbi Shmuel Miller shlita, the rosh yeshiva.

    Rabbi Avigdor Miller delivered a free public lecture (Thursday night) in the last year of his life; he taught that Jews should pray for the Israeli Army.

    I personally witnessed this lecture.
