one of Sarah Schenirer's favorite seforim
My wife reminded me over Shabbos of an interesting tidbit in the bio of Sarah Schenirer (I can't recall the title - I think it is Carry Me in Your Heart) by one of her students. If the bio is accurate, one of her favorite seforim was the Radomsker's Tiferes Shlomo, which I have been quoting on the parsha as of late. The bio (IIRC) does not say if this is simply a result of her Polish upbringing, or if there was something particular to the Radomsker's thought that made it appealing. My suspicion is that the former is true, but if anyone knows more, please comment away. My wife has always been intrigued by Sarah Schenirer - we know very little of her personal life, her husband, etc., outside her role as creator of Bais Ya'akov - it seems like there is a deliberate attempt to omit these details and focus only on her achievements, which only arouses curiosity as to the full story.
