Torah Encounters: Genesis (Paperback)
"Torah, as both book and process, is the taproot that penetrates to the heart of Jewish meaning, understanding, and expression. Torah study is how we mine not just meaning from the text, but our awareness of God's will," writes Rabbi Daniel Pressman in the introduction to Torah Encounters: Genesis. This book invites readers into the richness of the Torah, sharing context and information for each parasha, as well as commentary from generations of Biblical interpreters--historical and modern, and Rabbi Pressman's own insights. The first in the five-volume Torah Encounters series, Torah Encounters: Genesis makes the weekly Torah portion approachable and applicable. It is a wonderful resource for clergy, adult or high school Hebrew education, or personal study.
Rabbi Daniel Pressman is Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Beth David in Saratoga, California.
