Stone Edition of the Chumash
published June 1993

One of the richest introductions to the first five books of the Scriptures, which celebrates their lasting preeminence.

The first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures are called the "Torah." Interestingly, the latest research shows that the Hebrew word “Torah” likely comes from a root which has the sense of stretching out one’s finger or hand to point out a route. How wondrous it is to affirm the original, positive view of the first five books of the Bible as pointing out "the way of the LORD!" At one level the rest of the Scriptures are a commentary on the Torah, so the study of the Torah is the right starting place.

This classic work contains the Hebrew text of Rashi, the Aramaic text of Targum Onkelos, a contemporary English translation of the Torah, and an anthologized rabbinic commentary edited by Rabbi Nosson Scherman that draws upon the Talmud, Midrash, and Classic Rabbinical Commentators. It’s a wondrous introduction to the Torah!
