Product Description

Author: Abraham Chill

Recognized as a classic in the field, this book is a pioneering study dealing with the traditional rationale behind the 613 Commandments (Mitzvot) in the Torah (The Five Books of Moses). The author draws on the considerable literature to present the interpretation of the great rabbinical thinkers on each Commandment throughout the ages. Excerpts from the key commentaries are given in English translation. The book provides easy reference for the student interested in the systematic study of the Mitzvot and for anyone interested in additional information on a particular commandment.

Born in New York City, Rabbi Abraham Chill attended Yeshiva University and the City College of New York. He received his rabbinic ordination from Chief Rabbi Kook in Jerusalem and subsequently the degree of LL.B. in the United States. In 1943, after holding pulpits in Newburgh, NY, and Nashville, TN, he became Rabbi for Congregation Sons of Abraham in Providence, RI, a position he held until his retirement in 1969.
