In The Heart of Torah, Rabbi Shai Held’s Torah essays—two for each weekly portion—open new horizons in Jewish biblical commentary. Held probes the portions in bold, original, and provocative ways. He mines Talmud and midrashim, great writers of world literature, and astute commentators of other religious backgrounds to ponder fundamental questions about God, human nature, and what it means to be a religious person in the modern world. Along the way, he illuminates the centrality of empathy in Jewish ethics, the predominance of divine love in Jewish theology, the primacy of gratitude and generosity, and God’s summoning of each of us—with all our limitations—into the dignity of a covenantal relationship.

Hasidism, a great movement of spiritual revival within Judaism, began in 18th-century Eastern Europe and continues to have great influence on Jewish life today. A key tool of this revival was the oral sermon, using novel mystical readings of the Torah to open people's minds to thinking more profoundly about the texts and how the wisdom relates directly to their own lives. While Hasidic tales have become widely known to modern audiences, the teachings that stand at the very heart of Hasidism have remained a closed book for all except scholars. This fascinating selection, following the weekly Torah reading and the holiday cycle, and featured in English and Hebrew, renders them accessible in an extraordinary way.

The Heart of the Matter

The Heart of the Matter

This volume represents Rabbi Arthur Green's own quest for such a Judaism, both as a scholar and as a contemporary seeker.

"Judaism, like all the great religions, has a strand within it that sees inward devotion as an opening of the human heart to God's presence. This voice is not always easy to hear in a tradition where so much attention is devoted to the how rather than the why of religious living. The devotional claim, certainly a key part of Judaism's biblical heritage, has reasserted itself in the teachings of individual mystics and in the emergence of religious movements over the long course of Jewish history. This volume represents Rabbi Arthur Green's own quest for such a Judaism, both as a scholar and as a contemporary seeker. This collection of essays brings together Green's scholarly writings, centered on the history of early Hasidism, and his highly personal approach to a rebirth of Jewish spirituality in our own day. In choosing to present them in this way, he asserts a claim that they are all of a piece. They represent one man's attempt to wade through history and text, language and symbol, an array of voices both past and present, while always focusing on the essential question "What does it mean to be a religious human being, and what does Judaism teach us about it?" This, the author considers to be the heart of the matter." -- Publisher's description.

The Great Torah Commentators

The Great Torah Commentators

Author: Avraham Yaakov Finkel

Publisher: Jason Aronson

ISBN: UOM:39015018507833

Category: Religion

Page: 256

View: 258

As author Avraham Yaakov Finkel says in his introduction to The Great Torah Commentators, no words are adequate to describe the Torah. "Only by actually tasting the words of our sages, by biting into them, can we gain an insight into the profound wisdom and beauty of the Torah. The selections in this book are intended to serve as tidbits to arouse the reader's appetite to study the masters from their sources." The Great Torah Commentators groups the sages into seven areas of expertise: (1) Torah, (2) Mishnah, Talmud, and Midrash, (3) Halachah, (4) Mussar (Ethics), (5) Chasidism, (6) Philosophy, and (7) Kabbalah. Giants, among them Rashi, the Vilna Gaon, the Chafetz Chaim, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, the Baal Shem Tov, Nachman of Bratzlav, the Ari, and the Maharal of Prague, come to life through Finkel's masterful selection and translation of their writings. Included with the biographies and samples of these great sage's works are their portraits or photographs, and facsimiles of pages of their commentaries. When an authentic sage comments on the Torah, his words are also considered, in a real sense, to be "Torah" by the student of tradition. And every subject “from the most earthly to the most ethereal “is worthy of inquiry. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in The Great Torah Commentators by Avraham Yaakov Finkel

The wisdom books of the Old Testament have suffered from a certain "benign neglect". In The Tree of Life distinguished Bible scholar Roland E. Murphy describes the search for wisdom and its development throughout Israel's tumultuous history. Murphy interprets each wisdom book individually - Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, Ecclesiasticus, and Wisdom of Solomon - and includes a discussion of wisdom from other parts of the Old Testament. His exploration exposes the various guises that wisdom adopts - the "fear of the Lord", moral formation, the universality of human experience, the mysteries of creation, and others. Particularly noteworthy are the chapters on the personification of Woman Wisdom and on the relation of biblical wisdom to theology. The appendix will be a valuable help to those who wish to make comparisons between Israelite wisdom and that of the ancient Near East (Mesopotamia and Egypt). This second edition also includes a special supplement that surveys the latest developments in wisdom research and coordinates them with the basic text of the book.
