Does anyone know where to get the sefer ohr hatzfon, containing mussar of the Alter of Slabadka, either online for free or by buying an actual copy?

As this publication has been out of print for several years, I am in the midst of its digitization. We will also be uploading it uploading to Sefaria.org, as well as making it available for general purchase.

Edit: Its now on sefaria and wikitext. Please let met know if you discover anything which requires correcting, it is also available for purchase (see here).


Here are the links to sections 1, 3, 4, and 5

  • The snippet on Daat includes the material on the other three. Commented May 14, 2019 at 20:36
  • I didn't see the other 3 sections on daat... Is it in the PDF at the link I posted? Commented May 16, 2019 at 2:08
  • Yes. The same booklets that made it to HebrewBooks are included in the book excerpt on Daat. Different pages, same content. Commented May 16, 2019 at 3:32

It is available for purchase and printing here. Hatzlacha.


Ohr ha'Tzafon is out of print. Try search in a store with little traffic and old inventory-off the beaten path.

    Walter, welcome to Mi Yodeya, and thanks very much for this advice! Can you suggest a particular store? I hop you'll look around the site and find other stuff worth reading, perhaps including our 56 other mussar questions. Finally, please consider registering your account, which will give you access to more of the site's features.

This sefer is on Otsar Hachochma and 3 small sections are on Hebrewbooks.
