The Rabbi Daniel Travis Collection

I'm new to them....but I'm hooked already. Whether it is one of his works on tefilla, hashkafa, or halacha (my favorite!), every one of Rabbi Travis' sefarim is truly a "grand slam." His work is for all audiences, with his Hebrew halacha sefarim geared more to the advanced reader and rabbis.

For those unfamiliar, Rabbi Travis, a close confidant of Rav Moshe Shternbuch, lives in Har Nof and is Rosh Kollel of the "Kollel Toras Chaim" halacha kollel. I am impressed by his unique style of writing and psak that manages to remain loyal to the Israeli-Chareidi approach while being refreshingly balanced by his American background. 

His series on prayer is exceptionally easy to read and inspiring. His most recent work "Wine and Wisdom" is the everything about wine and halacha. I enjoyed every page. His "she'ilot and teshuvot" are original, relevant, and often brave. 

Indeed, I was so excited about Rabbi Travis' sefarim that I went out and purchased a number of them rather than have to wait an extra few weeks for complimentary review copies! Need I say more?

More specific and detailed reviews will appear at a later date, bl"n.
