The commentary of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch on Chumash is famous for its breathtaking insights into the language and themes of the Torah. Since it first appeared, nearly 150 years ago, the Rabbi Hirsch's commentary has gained worldwide popularity for the breathtaking scope of insight and information it offers to scholar, student and layman alike. It combines history, halachah, hashkafah and ta'amei hamitzvos into one magnificent pattern that stretches brilliantly across all of the Five Books of the Torah. And underlying the commentary is Rav Hirsch's unique approach to Lashon Hakodesh: his profound analysis of the letters, root words and structure of words found in Chumash.
This magnificent one-volume Chumash contains essential excerpts from the complete Hirsch commentary. This edition makes it much more practical to study the Hirsch commentary on the weekly parashah.
