    Maybe next year you can post the English version.

    GCT, Joseph

  2. I think that R Gil once posted a link to the Noraos HaRav volume on the Avodas YK.

    I should point out that what is availible online is only the first edition, which sold out. There is now a second edition edited by R Yair Kahn and published by Mosad ha-Rav Kook, which contains additional hiddushim of the Rav and valuable notes by R. Kahn. I had it with me in shul today.

  4. Larry Kaplan-I had both editions of the sefer in question, and found that the same was greatly enhanced by Volume 6 of the Noraos HaRav.

    Steve: Indeed, you are right. The first, very extended, shiur in Noraot HaRav vol. 6 on Avodas Yom ha-Kipurim is almost an entire sefer by itself and covers most of the subject matter presented in the Kuntrus. There is a grear overlap between the Shiur and the Kuntrus, though in some places they complement one another.

    Hag Sameach!

  6. Larry Kaplan-Chag Sameach to you!

    I especially found RYBS’s shiur in the Noraos HaRav Vol 6 on Yisurin very inspiring, and highly recommend it for anyone seeking to understand such a seemingly foreboding topic.
