    The lack of comments may indicate how many years it has been since the niftar was active in politics. The current generation never heard of him. Rabbi Lorincz did a service by writing his books . He hails from an era when our political leaders were individuals of substance and committment. Tragically, today’s crop is often less lofty in their ambitions. The Israeli Knesset is not a source of great pride in too many cases. Which modern leaders can compare with the first generation, religious or secular.

    The leaders simply reflect their constituents (which is always true – we get the leaders we deserve). The average Israeli was more passionate in who he was and what he stood for and what he believed in a generation or two ago. Nowadays, Israel had become just a place where the people live (ho hum) and no one gets fired up over ideals ( are there any idealists left?). The few idealists who still exist (mostly on the right wing) are considered by most people as somewhat nuts.

    Very important piece. It is especially valuable as a prism through which to appreciate Rabbi Lorincz’s works about gedolim. Before this piece I would have stereotyped Rabbi Lorincz as a k’noker charedi politician type, short on integrity and long on puffery. This piece, stressing davka his ehrlechkeit, really hit the spot for me and makes me value his treatment of the Chazon Ish, Brisker Rav and Rav Shach all the more.
