Complete series! The Steinsaltz Tanakh HaMevo'ar Series with commentary by Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz has already made waves in Jewish communities around the world, from Bar/Bat-Mitzvah children who enjoy learning from its clear layout, to Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin!
The new series is divided into 17 volumes with an accessible and clear annotation of content. All books contain the most up-to-date historical information of places, peoples, plants and details mentioned in the verses alongside rare illustrations. For those seeking to deepen and expand their knowledge, Rabbi Steinsaltz brings background materials, biblical parallelism, alternative interpretations, Midrash and Jewish thought as well as external documents and linguistic notes.
Rabbi Steinsaltz begins with the words: "The purpose of this commentary is not to present revolutionary innovations, but rather to serve as a transparent interpretation, whose aim is to be so imperceptible that the reader will not notice the existence of a barrier between himself and the Scriptures. Let the Torah speak for itself, the prophets’ prophesy their prophecy, and the sages their wisdom. "
