A Torah Commentary for Our Times: Numbers and Deuteronomy
A provocative approach to the weekly sidrah, juxtaposing the insights of ancient, medieval, and modern commentators (including the author). Perfect for both beginning Torah students of all ages and scholars seeking new angles on the text. The three volumes are available individually or as a handsome three-volume boxed set, ideal for a bar or bat mitzvah or confirmation gift.
