The Hirsch Chumash – so brilliant in content and expansive in scope – now has a comprehensive index that allows easy access to a specific subject, word, or reference. This 312-page volume has 3 separate indices: subject index, word index, and source index with references to Nach, Midrash, Mishnah, Gemara, and Halachah – 2,700 references in all. The subject index is in English while the word index and source index are in Hebrew.
The index volume contains multiple levels of reference. The English index to subjects found in the Chumash is followed by an English cross-reference between the Hirsch Chumash and theCollected Writings Set.
In addition, there is a Hebrew index of Hebrew words/roots explained within the Chumash and an extensive Hebrew source index. The source index goes through Rav Hirsch's sources and lists where the pesukim or words are referenced in the Hirsch Chumash.The sources are ordered by
- Meforshei Talmud
- Rambam Mishneh Torah
- Shulchan Aruch
The Hirsch Chumash Index is sure to be a valuable tool for anyone wishing to research various topics through Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch's commentary on Chumash.
