  1. You mention that a translation of the hakdma is being printed soon. Is this correct? Under what imprimatur?

    There already is my translation available on this blog – http://www.aishdas.org/asp/ShaareiYosher.pdf The book will include a professionally refined version. Edit (7-Mar-19): This is now chapter 1 of the book.

    My sefer, Widen Your Tent (c.f. Yeshaiah: הַרְחִ֣יבִי ׀ מְק֣וֹם אָהֳלֵ֗ךְ), went to the printer a couple of days ago, bH and ba”h. I went with Mosaica Press, so it will be available everywhere Feldheim books are.

    Very brief overview:
    Introduction: the importance of developing a big-picture view of Judaism.

    Chapter 1 is the haqdamah and translation.

    Chapters 2-7 are my thoughts on the subjects Rav Shimon raises. How one talmid-of-a-talmid builds his worldview around the haqdamah.

    Chapter 8 discusses a few core middos that are central to living according to Rav Shimon’s values, some of which look very different when one’s goal is a broad “ani”.

    “Chapter” 9 is just a few closing pages, a thought by Rav Dovid Lifshitz (R’ Shimon’s talmid, my rebbe), to fulfill the idea that every sefer (like Shemoneh Esrei) should end with shalom.

    Thank you for listening to the shiur.
