Chaim Natan Firszt was born in Israel and at a young age moved with his family to Montreal, Canada. In Montreal, he received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English from Concordia University, followed by a Teaching Diploma in English and a Master of Education Degree from McGill University.
During his years of teaching in Montreal, the author learned Torah with the Rosh Yeshiva of Belz. The Torah learning became the inspiration for a series of five illustrated and captioned books based on the weekly Torah readings. Rabbi Pinchas Hirschprung, z”tl, the Chief Rabbi of Montreal at the time, wrote an approbation for the books. Years later, in Israel, Rabbi Moshe Halbershtam, z”tl, who was then a Dayan of the Beis Din of the Eidah Charedis Yerushalayim, wrote an additional approbation for the books.
