Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807407577, Paperback)Rabbis, educators, and longtime colleagues, Kerry M. Olitzky and Leonard S. Kravitz have together produced a series of modern commentaries on fundamental Jewish texts. Each of these editions features a line-by-line translation coupled with the original text and commentary, breathing new life into traditional rabbinic readings. Each also contains essays and gleanings that draw upon the works of other scholars to better enhance the reader’s understanding of the subject. This series is a wonderful addition to your Jewish library, whether you are approaching the texts for the first time or the hundredth time. It is suited for both individual reflection and class study.
Passages from the Book of Proverbs have worked their way into our siddur and Jewish vocabulary. This new gender-sensitive translation and commentary will help bring the timeless teachings of Proverbs to a new generation of readers.
