A study from the New School of Orthodox Torah Commentary By Yitzchak Etshalom 6"x9.25" (220 Pages)Publisher: Urim Publications / OU Press, 2012
Yitzchak Etshalom initiates readers into the world of the New School of Orthodox Torah commentary in a series of compelling studies of Exodus.
The study of Tanakh has always been a staple of Jewish life. The new windows which have opened up in the last century into the rooms of academia - anthropology, archeology, philology and literary analysis, to name a few - have given new perspectives to traditional study and have allowed Orthodox students of our Book of Books to understand, with greater depth and insight, the stories, laws, prophecies and poems that have been our breath for these millennia. In this rich volume, Rabbi Etshalom demonstrates the methodology through which traditional study meets academic rigor, and new insights into the meaning of the text and its import come to light.
