TME bemidbar-icon
Torah MiEtzion: New Readings in Tanach - Bemidbar
ed. Rav Ezra Bick and Rav Yaakov Beasley
This is the final volume of the five volume series on the Torah, presenting a selection of shiurim given on the parasha by different lecturers, all of whom are connected in one way or another with Yeshivat Har Etzion. Most of these articles originally appeared as part of the Parsha series of the Israel Koschitzky Virtual Beit Midrash, which has been appearing for the last twenty years and is disseminated over the internet. But the impetus for publication is not merely a desire to repackage a successful and interesting series of shiurim. The VBM series has managed to be itself the catalyst for the written expression of a body of work, from different authors, which represents a distinct approach to parshanut HaTorah, one which has been developing over the last forty years in the Yeshiva and its affiliated Herzog Teacher’s College, and which today is the most vibrant and influential school of modern commentary and interpretation of the Biblical text within the Torah world.  Table of Contents.

Torah MiEtzion New Readings in Tanach - Bereshit, by Yeshivat Har Etzion
 
TorahMiEtzion160x106Torah MiEtzion presents original, insightful essays on the Bible by the rabbis of Yeshivat Har Etzion, one of today’s most vibrant and influential schools of modern biblical interpretation. Since its founding in Israel in 1968, Yeshivat Har Etzion has emphasized Bible study alongside Talmud study in order to foster what its founder, Rav Yehuda Amital z”l, called an “organic understanding” of Torah and Torah philosophy. The result has been the development of a unique, analytically rigorous, creative, interpretive method that is infused with a profound quest for meaning. This first volume of Torah MiEtzion, which examines the Torah portions of the Book of Bereshit, includes essays by Rabbis Aharon Lichtenstein, Menachem Leibtag, Chanoch Waxman, Yoel Bin-Nun, Elchanan Samet, Yonatan Grossman, Yaakov Medan and other leading scholars. Table of Contents.

It offers an insightful introduction, and concise, illuminating essays on each Mida. Based on a series of lectures given over twenty years by Rabbi Ezra Bick, a leading scholar at Israel’s Yeshivat Har Etzion, In His Mercy is the first English edition of this special work.
