THE TORAH - A Modern Commentary

THE TORAH - A Modern Commentary
General Editor: W. Gunther Plaut

Union for Reform Judaism
1604 pages
ISBN: 0-8074-0883-2

Now in its Revised Edition, under the editorship of David S. Stein, this commentary produced by the Reform Judaism movement is a welcome addition to one's bookshelf. With explanatory essays on each parasha and the Haftarah texts included in-line rather than at the end of the book, great trouble has been taken to make a usable and informative commentary. The translation is essentially that of the JPS Tanakh, with revisions by David Stein, overseen by consulting editors. Good scholarship is also present in the thoughtful commentary that, even if one doesn't believe some of it, always informs.
