Rashi's Torah Commentary: Religious, Philosophical, Ethical, and Educational Insights (Hardcover)
Rashi's Torah Commentary draws upon comments made by Rashi throughout each of the Torah portions in the Five Books of Moses and extracts the basic thoughts, ideas, and values of Judaism that are embedded in each of his brief comments. The author, Pinchas Doron, fully develops these ideas and shows how Rashi's Torah commentary attained such unparalleled regard. Many supercommentaries on Rashi deal with specific questions about his writings. By contrast, the present volume concentrates entirely on developing the general ideas and moral lessons inherent in Rashi's direct comments, which are generally just alluded to by Rashi himself. Rashi's Torah Commentary is a condensed version of the author's five-volume Hebrew study and is intended for both the lay reader and scholar alike.
