The Sapirstein Rashi: You can’t understand Chumash without Rashi, “the father of commentators.” This classic work includes a translation of Rashi’s words, together with ArtScroll’s trademark “elucidation” to clarify the flow of the commentary and explain what Rashi is telling us.
Ramban on the Torah: Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman’s commentary to the Chumash permeates all aspects of Jewish thought. Because of the depth of his ideas and his terse style, though, much of his work remained a closed book. This translation, with its explanatory notes, introductions, and elucidations makes this masterpiece accessible and understandable.
The Davis Edition of Baal HaTurim: Best known as the author of the forerunner of the Shulchan Aruch, the “Tur” also wrote a Chumash commentary like no other. This elucidation of the Baal HaTurim is unexcelled in any language, and casts a brilliant light on previously unnoticed aspects of the Chumash.
Aleinu L’Shabei’ach: This is a fascinating and inspiring collection of stories and teachings from the writings, shiurim, and conversations of Rav Yitzchok Zilberstein, the noted rav and posek who is a son-in-law of HaGaon Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv and a brother-in-law of HaGaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky. A best-seller in Hebrew, it is fast becoming a household word in English- speaking homes as well.
Rabbi Frand on the Parashah: These wonderfully insightful essays on the
parashah by a beloved teacher and author are a marvelous combination of
Torah thought and insightful understanding of our lives, our challenges, our
strengths and weaknesses. No wonder tens of thousands have made Rabbi Frand a steady “guest” at their Shabbos table!
Torah for your Table: Compiled by Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis, bestselling
author, renowned speaker, and founder of the pioneering outreach
organization Hineni, this is a beautifully crafted collection of essays on
the parashah, written by her sons, Rabbis Yisroel and Osher Anshel Jungreis. The lessons on the parashah are beautifully articulated and explained by
a family that has spent decades bringing the splendor of Torah thought to
hundreds of thousands of Jews of all levels of observance.
