Perhaps no man in recent history has ever commanded more awe and respect by Jews and non-Jews alike. A Talmudic scholar, philosopher, Kabbalist, and prolific author whose works are widely read and quoted to this day, he is held in the highest regard by the entire spectrum of the Jewish community. A famed defender of his people, he is the subject of numerous legends, books and plays. In tribute to his greatness, his city erected an impressive statue of him at the entrance of its town hall. His name was Rav Yehudah Livo or Leib ben Rav Betzalel. To the world at large, he is widely known as the Maharal of Prague. His story is the subject of this lecture.
