Product Description

For over 1,000 years, the secrets of the Jewish psyche have been the province of the few who could master the language and nuances of The Midrash Rabbah, the greatest biblical commentary ever produced by the hand of man. Now, for the first time, the original Hebrew text along with a cogent English language translation, and a new, groundbreaking psychological and philosophical analysis and interpretation of this master commentary is at the rabbi's and layman's fingertips. Read it to discover the vast storehouse of knowledge that has kept Judaism vibrant and alive.


In this volume, the author shows us how the Midrash interprets the episodes of the Garden of Eden: the struggle of Adam and Eve to reach their potential; their successes and failures; and the legacy they have left us, their children. The Midrash is replete with wide-ranging discussions on the meaning of the commandments and the reasons for God's creation of Good and Evil in this world.


Rabbi Wilfred Shuchat has been an active rabbi for more than 50 years. He studied and taught The Midrash Rabbah during his tenure as Rabbi of Shaar HaShomayim Synagogue in Montreal, Canada. His groundbreaking work in the interpretation and analysis of the Midrash has made these psychological and philosophical Rabbinic pespectives accessible to both the layman and clergy alike. He is the author of The Creation According to the Midrash Rabbah.
