A Midrashic insight into the lives of Joseph, Aharon, Miriam, Lavan, Esav and Bilaam
Description: Saints and Sinners is essentially two books in one. The first part is a novel in-depth analysis of three righteous persons in the Torah - Yosef, Aharon and Miriam; and three wicked persons - Lavan, Esav and Bilaam,. The main characteristics of these personae are determined using Midrashic sources and biblical commentators including Rashi, Nachmanides, Malbim, and other authoritative glosses.
The second, self-contained part of the book, entitled Hamenorah Hatehorah (103 Comprehensive Rules of Interpretation Used by Rashi), is a detailed analysis of the style of Rashi and the rules used in his commentary. More than one hundred rules are documented and elucidated. This offers a unique opportunity for students at all levels of experience to understand both the depth and the greatness of Rashi
