Chochmo U'Mussar - The Sermons of Rav Dr. Salomon Breuer

$29.99
More Info

On The Weekly Torah Readings With Original Interpretations. Based On Midrashic Analysis And Hirschian Teachings.

Rav Dr. Salomon Breuer (1850–1926) was a talmid of the Ksav Sofer and successor to his father-in-law, Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch, as Rav of the Frankfurt Kehillah, known as Adas Yeshurun. He was founder and Rosh Yeshiva of the Frankfurt Yeshiva.

Rav Breuer preserved in written form his Shabbos and Yom Tov shul sermons, which included moving inspirational messages and timeless lessons for our people. They were built on original interpretations of the Torah, based on various Midrashic sources. Rav Breuer’s sermons are a rich source of wisdom and exhortation — Chochmo u’Mussar.

Originally published as separate volumes in German (1930-1936) and in English (1972-1977), this thoroughly revised 624-page volume presents Rav Breuer’s profound and intricate expositons in a clear, modern idiom and a welcome addition to the study of the weeklyparashah.

Chumash Mesoras Harav- 5 Volume Set

Chumash Mesoras HaRav 5 Volume Set Including Haftarah [Hardcover]

More Info
Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik (the Rav) was the towering rabbinic thinker of the twentieth century. In addition to his wellspring of Torah knowledge, the Rav taught, wrote and lectured extensively on Chumash. The Rav, however, never wrote a systematic commentary on Chumash, and, until now, the only way to study his interpretation and analysis of Chumash was to search for pertinent material by wading through the Rav's published writings and hard-to-find audio tapes of his lectures and shiurim. Now, for the first time, the Rav's teachings on Chumash have been collected into a published commentary. Commentary by the Rav on the weekly Haftarah is included. Edited with skill by Dr. Arnold Lustiger, this groundbreaking Chumash, the first volume of a contemplated set of the entire Torah, reflects the Rav's intellectual breadth and depth, his exegetical creativity and the timelessness of his insights. Complete with an English translation of the Torah text, Rashi's commentary and an eloquent and original Torah commentary, the Chumash Mesoras HaRav is perfect for synagogue, home and school use. About the Author Dr. Arnold Lustiger previously edited Machzor Mesoras Harav on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Before Hashem You Shall Be Purified: Rabbi Joseph B.

The Tanakh is the cornerstone of Jewish thought and religious life. The serious study of Tanakh requires constant effort, as we sift through the commentaries who are locked in a perpetual state of debate. At the same time, we have a sacred duty to move seamlessly beyond the textual analysis in order to build a robust religious life and a virtuous and inclusive society, and partake of the living experience of God and humanity.Master educator Rabbi Hayyim Angel, the National Scholar of the Institute for Jewish Ideas and Ideals (jewishideas.org), focuses on that intersection between text analysis and an authentic religious life. These scholarly articles-written in an engaging, accessible, and lucid manner-explore an array of seminal religious topics from biblical and rabbinic tradition, including: The Land of Israel, biblical and contemporary morality, Sephardic biblical interpreters from the past 500 years, and dogma in Jewish tradition, among others. By understanding these foundational issues, readers of all backgrounds will connect more deeply to their religious roots and apply these discussions in their daily lives.
