  • Or Hachayim: Commentary on the the Torah

    Chayim ben Attar

    Or Hachayim is considered a classic commentary. The original text of this commentary is found in most editions of Mikraot Gedolot. This translation gives English speakers access to this important work.

    Rabbi Chaim ben Attar (1696-1742) was born in Morocco, moved to Lovorno, Italy, where he briefly served as Rabbi before making Aliyah to the Holy Land, first settling in Acre, thence moving to Jerusalem. Or Hachayim is considered a classic commentary. The original text of this commentary is found in most editions of Mikraot Gedolot. Nonetheless, this translator is convinced that many portions of this commentary present difficulties for English speaking readers who do not experience similiar difficulties when perusing the Hebrew commentaries of Rashbam, Seforno, etc. It is this translator's fond hope that he made a contribution to the study of the Or Hachayim commentary by a wider public as a result of having translated it into English.

  • Shney Luchot Habrit

    Isaiah Horowitz

    The Shney Luchot Habrit represent a labour spanning many decades.The work has served as an inspiration to rabbis and laymen for centuries, but due to its kabbalistic passages, it presents great difficulties for those who are not at home in that discipline.

  • Shadal - Torah Commentary

    Samuel David Luzzatto

    Luzzatto's Torah commentary presents the reader with the work of an accomplished and highly respected Bible Commentator of the 19th century. Luzzatto was a leading Bible scholar at the university of Padua,Italy, who tackled the well worn theories of Bible critics who deny the Divinity of the Torah, both Gentile and Jewish. His commentary preceded, by 40 years, that of Dr. David Hoffman, head of the Berlin Rabbinical seminary, which first appeared in 1904 and also addressed Bible critics. Luzzatto's credentials as an expert in all the languages that could have had an influence on the text of the Torah are beyond question. His highlighting the moral superiority of the Torah to any competing classic work on morality is most refreshing.
