I read this on a plane ride to Israel, to put myself in the proper and appreciative frame of mind. The Rav’s insights are marvelous and unique, and the 6 knocks gave me lots of pause and reflection.
It made me think, a lot, and me realize, plenty. I fell a little more in love with his teachings, and a lot more in love with Israel.

Soloveitchik was born into a family already known for its great Torah learning. His grandfather and father, emphasized a thorough analysis of Talmud, and it is in this way that Rav Soloveitchik studied and taught his own students.
Kol Dodi Dofek: Listen, My Beloved Knocks by Joseph B. Soloveitchik
He was awarded a Ph. He became Rosh HaYeshiva of Yeshiva University, and gave weekly shiurim to senior students, while delivering philosophy lectures to graduate students. His accomplishments in both Halachic study and secular study made him a unique Torah dlfek to Torah scholars all over. His limitless expertise in and appreciation of secular disciplines never lessened his total devotion to Torah study.
Indeed Torah study was the central focus of his life and his teachings.
Thus he was one of the leaders of the generation. He never engaged in pejorative or invectives when speaking of non-orthodox Jews. He was polite and respectful to others.
Kol Dodi Dofek: Listen, My Beloved Knocks
Yet he was firm and inflexible in protecting and advocating the Mesorah of Torah tradition. His ruling, written by him, that one is not allowed to pray in a doddi of worship that violates Halachic standards even if it would result in not fulfilling the Mitzvah of Tekiath Shofar is an illustration of his strong stand on Torah and Mesorah. This can also be seen from his opinion that while dialogue with non-Jewish faiths may be necessary, it may not deal with theological topics. This was a historic principle which guided his disciples dod all their dealings with non-Jewish clergy, and continues to this very day.
