Rabbi Hanoch Teller began his writing career in 1976 when he submitted an article to the The Jewish Observer and Moment magazine about American college students in Kiryat Shmona. He started out writing under the pen name Abba Eidelman. He has also written for the Jewish Women’s Outlook and The Jerusalem Post.
His first series of books in the mid-1980s, Once Upon a Soul, Souled! and Soul Survivors, dealt with Divine supervision and human kindness. Next, he penned biographies of contemporary Orthodox Jewish personalities, including Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Horowitz (the Bostoner Rebbe), Baltimore Torah day school principal Rabbi Binyamin Steinberg, Toronto philanthropist Joseph Tanenbaum, and Mir yeshiva dean Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel, using anecdotes from their lives to convey moral and ethical lessons. Several of his books have been translated into Hebrew, Russian and Spanish.
The video is a little longish. But it’s fun nevertheless.
