Close to 500 years ago, the revolutionary idea of Mikra’os Gedolos was introduced, in which Torah commentaries were printed on the same page as the text they discussed.
The Czuker Edition Mikra’os Gedolos on Chumash and on Nevi’im took that concept to an entirely new level. And now that new level of excellence includes the Kesuvim, as ArtScroll announces the publication of the Czuker Edition Mikra’os Gedolos on Daniel / Ezra /Nechemiah.
Like the others in the series, the text of every commentary was intensively researched. Scholars used the most accepted edition available as their “base text” and then compared it with other editions, ensuring an unprecedented level of textual accuracy.
This volume includes the classic Mikra’os Gedolos commentaries: Targum Yonasan ben Uziel, Rashi, Radak, Rid, Ralbag, Minchas Shai, Biur HaGra, Mezudas David, Mezudas Tzion, and Malbim. In addition, it includes mefarshim that don’t usually appear on the Mikra’os Gedolos page: Mahari Kara, Maharal, Minchah Ketanah, Rishon LeTzion, Chomas Anach, Yesod VeShoresh HaAvodah. Finally, the volume also includes new, original additions: Likkutei Shas U’Medrashei HaTannaim, an original comprehensive compilation, citing relevant texts from Talmud Bavli, Yerushalmi, and major Midrashim where a verse is discussed; an original collection of comments by Baal HaTurim on Chumash explaining verses in Nevi’im and Kesuvim, and Sifsei Zekainim , an anthology of classic commentaries explaining Rashi’s commentary.
Every commentary is menukad (vowelized). All abbreviations are “opened up” and the text is punctuated. When a commentary quotes another sefer, the source citation is noted.
State-of-the-art typography ensures a wonderful learning experience. The binding is side sewn, library quality and the paper is acid-free and specially milled, to ensure the volumes will last for generations.
The Kesuvim are part of our mesorah. With this new volume, we can study and understand them on a whole new level.
