About this Book
For centuries, the brilliant light of Rashi – Rav Shlomo ben Yitzchak of medieval France - has illuminated the world of Torah, earning him the esteemed title of "The Father of Commentators." With unrivaled clarity and grace, Rashi's commentary on the Torah has become an integral – and truly indispensable – part of Chumash study.
There are more people studying Torah today than ever before, and their level of knowledge and sophistication is higher than ever. They know that beneath the deceptively straightforward exterior of Rashi's commentary lies a depth that has captivated the intellects of esteemed talmidei chachamim for more than eight centuries, and they wish to dig a bit deeper, to understand not just what Rashi says, but the underlying concepts. They want to gain a deeper look into Rashi’s thought process and better understand those places where the commentators disagree with Rashi. What motivated Rashi with his specific remark? How does the wording in the Torah reveal Rashi's intent? To which passage in the Targum does Rashi allude?
This new series will take you to a whole new level of understanding of the foremost commentary on Chumash. It will satisfy scholar, student and layman alike, and will become recognized as the standard comprehensive treatment of Rashi.
