Description: The Torah Anthology is a clear, modern translation of the text and the Me'am Lo'ez commentary of each Megillah. One each of each megilot - Kohelet - Ecclesiastes, Shir Hashirim - Song of Songs, Ruth, Aicha - Lamentations, and Esther- is included in the 5 volume set.
The Me'am Lo'ez (Torah Anthology) commentary on the Bible was originally written in the Ladino language in Constantinople, mostly during the 18th century, by successive rabbinic scholars. It is a monumental classical work which weaves halachah and aggadah from the Talmud and the Midrash with the best of the later commentaries to produce an exceedingly thorough, yet immensely readable, work.
