PASSAGES: Text and Transformation in the Parasha
by Rabbi Michael Hattin '85

Published by Urim Publications. Hardcover, 384 pages

Passages is a journey through the text of the Torah that can transform you.

Passages is a thought-provoking study of the weekly parasha that deftly weaves literary analysis of the Biblical text with selected teachings of classical Jewish commentary. Revealing the intricacies of the Torah portion and offering innovative readings, Passages applies the Torah’s message to the complexities of modern living. Passages is a journey into the landscape of Biblical study that will both challenge as well as refresh you. This volume of parsha commentary was inspired by Rav Hattin's series Introduction to Parashat HaShavua of the Israel Koschitzky Virtual Beit Midrash.
