Torah: ... a modern commentary

W. Gunther Plaut, David E. S. Stein
Union for Reform Judaism, 2006 - 1604 sidor
Nearly 25 years after the ground-breaking publication of the firstever English language liberal Torah commentary, we present The Torah: A Modern Commentary, Revised Edition. This volume features new highlights and makes it easier than ever to study, read, and teach Torah. This volume features updated commentary and translations, including a gender-sensitive version of the JPS translation, with largely gender-neutral God language and a completely fresh translation of Genesis and of the haftarot by the late Rabbi Chaim Stern. As Rabbi David Ellenson, President of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, states, "This book provide a dazzling compendium of sources both classical and modern, and a variety of voices that will enhance worship and study of everyone."

I certainly don't agree with all of Plaut's conclusions in this commentary. That being said the commentaries do help clarify many obscure parts of the Old Testament and helps me prepare for Torah Study and have intelligent things to say. Läs hela recensionen
