Rabbi Shai Graucher was a ben bayis at the home of Rav Chaim Kanievsky zt”l for almost two decades, forging a most unique relationship with the gadol hador. He is also a popular author who has brought Rav Chaim’s teachings to the English-speaking public in works such as his five-volume Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Chumash, Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Zemiros, Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Tehillim, and his latest release, Rav Chaim Kanievsky on Siddur.
Reb Shai was a member of Rav Chaim’s inner circle and a fixture in his home, serving as a conduit for countless communications with the gadol hador. Almost no one outside of Rav Chaim’s family was as familiar with the goings-on at 23 Rechov Rashbam as Reb Shai was for the last 18 years.
In honor of the release of his brand new volume, Inside ArtScroll once again welcomed Reb Shai, who traveled in to the United States from Israel to discuss his latest work and – with emotion, passion, and even tears – share fascinating firsthand stories and accounts about Rav Chaim. This interview is enthralling, captivating and uplifting. Enjoy and be inspired.
