Product Description

Translated by R'Aryeh Kaplan. This volume completes the Book of Genesis. Here we witness Jacob's marriage to Rachel and Leah, as well as the birth of his sons, who would be destined to give rise to the Twelve Tribes of Israel. The story of Joseph is related in all its detail, virtually bringing the reader back to the ancient Egyptian scene. Throughout the narrative, the significance of each event is clearly explained. all this is done within the context of the original text of the Torah. Anthology of the major classical commentaries is presented, not as a dry textual analysis, but as living drama. An important feature of this volume is the "Chronology of Genesis", indexing all the events in the first three volumes of the Torah Anthology in a chronological order. This provides the reader with an immediate historical perspective of the events in the Book of Genesis, along with teir sources in the Torah Anthology. The Torah Anthology is a clear, modern translation of Me'am Lo'ez, hailed as "the outstanding work of Ladino litrature" Written by R' Yaakov Culi, one of the greatest Sepharadie sages of his time, the book was first published in 1730. It changed the spiritual climate of the entire Mediterranian region. Eastern Jews esteemed Me'am Lo'ez as a major classic, affording it virtually the same status as the Talmud and Midrash. Many count Me'am Lo'ez among the best commentaries ever written on the Torah-in any language. The book is a veritable encyclopedia of Jewish knowledge.
