Product Description

This significant commentary on the Torah, and the five Megillat, elucidates many major philosophical issues, such as the relationship between Torah and man-made philosophy, the conflict between faith and reason, and the seeming paradox of man's free will versus G-d's knowledge of the future. Rav Arama emphasizes that the Torah always takes precedence when in conflict with human reasoning.

A challenging and thought-provoking work!

About the author:
The author, Rabbi Isaac ben Moshe Arama lived in Spain from 1420–1494. He was a Rabbi, philosopher and preacher. As a young man, he taught at Zamoar, then served as rabbi in Taragona and Fraga in the province of Aragon. Later, he was appointed Rabbi of Calatayud where he wrote most of his works. After the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492, he settled in Naples, Italy. There he died in 1494. He is best known for his Akeydat Yitzchak, which was published in Salonika in 1522, and is written in the form of philosophical homilies and allegorical commentaries on Pentateuch.
