Last week, we introduced our new Spotlight on ArtScroll Treasures feature, where we shine the spotlight on some of the excellent classics that we’ve published in our almost forty year history. One of those treasures is an ArtScroll best-seller, Gateway to Judaism.
Gateway to Judaism is unique. It offers a distinctive blend of Jewish philosophy, Jewish law, and practical application illustrated through the experiences of “the Levy’s”, a fictional family that guides us through traditional Jewish customs, holidays, and lifecycle events.
The book addresses many fascinating and essential aspects of traditional faith and practice, including:
What are the major milestones of Jewish life? | How do we pray? | Why do we keep kosher? | Why do we put mezuzahs on doorposts? | What are the thirteen fundamentals of Jewish thought? | What is the rationale for observing the commandments of the Torah (mitzvot)? | Why is Torah study central to Jewish communal life? | How can we know the Torah is a divine document? | Why are justice, charity, kindness, and ethics such important issues amongst Jews? | Why do we have so many holidays and what do they signify? | Why do we say so many blessings (brachot)? |

Rav Shlomo Wolbe zt’l — “The Mashgiach” — was one of the towering Torah personalities of the twentieth century, the quintessential educator who helped take the torch of the pre-war Mussar Movement and reignite it in the modern world. His teachings and his many sefarim, including Alei Shur, are classics of Jewish thought and hashkafah, studied and beloved throughout the Torah world.
For decades, Rav Wolbe gave regular discourses on the Torah, focusing his penetrating insight, broad knowledge, and profound understanding on the weekly parashah. In Rav Wolbe on Chumash Rabbi Yitzchok Caplan, Rav Wolbe’s grandson, has collected Rav Wolbe’s teachings, both from his weekly lectures and from his many sefarim, and melded them into a deep and yet accessible Torah work.
Rav Wolbe on Chumash is a perfect book for the Shabbos table, or for any time we want to follow the wise guidance of this revered master of mussar.
