Product Description


'Grossman draws heavily from the current Israeli scholarship on Rashi, including his own scholarly works, to present a well-rounded picture of Rashi. It is a work of synthesis; explicating clearly more arcane studies. Gross is a very good teacher, making his arguments clearly and using examples which clarify his own even further. He is especially helpful to explain Rashi's relationship with the midrashic literature whether in the commentary of the Torah or elsewhere. Recommended for libraries with comprehensive undergraduate programmes and any synagogue library.' Roger S. Kohn, Association for Jewish Libraries Reviews 'Avraham Grossman, one of the world's foremost scholars of medieval Judaica ... reads some famous texts very closely in an attempt to make Rashi come to life for twenty-first century readers ... a tour de force ... Grossman's book, just like the works of Rashi, can be read with profit and enjoyment by both scholars and amateurs.' --Martin Lockshin, H-Judaic
