Be the first to review this product

What divine purpose do the Mitzvot, the Biblical commandments, serve? What moral and spiritual goals do the Mitzvot envision? The Sefer ha-Hinnukh, one of the principal works in Jewish ethical and Halakhic literature, is a primary source for ta'amei ha-mitzvot, the reasons and purpose of the divine commandments in the Torah. A Philosophy of Mitzvot by Rabbi Dr. Gersion Appel sets forth the Hinnukh's objectives and his approach to revealing the religious and ethical meaning of the mitzvot.
