Rabbi Eliyahu Kitov lived through turbulent times, whether as a young man in war-torn Poland in the middle of the last century, or as an early settler in the fledgling State of Israel during its formative years. In Israel, he developed into an exceptional educator and outstanding writer, and these two skills merged remarkably well when he authored a series of innovative texts that still resonate strongly throughout the Jewish world.

Twenty five plus 11=36. That is "the equation of life, since it is the operating principle of all Creation," writes Rabbi Pinchas Winston. A former Aish HaTorah professional, the teacher, public speaker and author proves that these numbers indicate what should have happened in Gan Eden: history would have come to a glorious, painless end and we'd be better off for it.

Jews would be the most populous group on Earth today if our numbers when we left Egypt more than 3,000 years ago had been allowed to grow in a natural, unimpeded way. But we know from the history of massacres and laws against our people that the rate of Jewish population growth has been anything but natural. How have we survived so many enemies over so many years? How can we have any hope for the future?

Rabbi Dovid Landesman jokes that one of his former students used to refer to him as General Eclectic because he could never safely predict how he would come down on various issues. Another talmid reminds me that the rabbi was sometimes referred to as the "adderaba" (Aramaic for "on the contrary") because he could usually be counted upon to present a viewpoint that never feared challenging the establishment. The most cogent appreciation, however, is that offered by a ninth grader who, after listening to a talk on parashat hashavua, approached him and said, "Rebbi, I don't like the way you speak!" Somewhat taken aback, Rabbi Landesman asked him to explain his criticism. The student replied, "You always want us to think!"

As any psychologist can tell you - no two people who see an event come away with the very same experience. Criminologists and detectives who question people who may have witnessed a crime experience the fact that several different people will report various versions of the event.
