Koren Releases Torah MiEtzion: Bamidbar

With the June release of Torah MiEtzion: Bamidbar, Maggid Books is proud to announce the completion of the five-volume Torah Mi­Etzion series.

The Torah MiEtzion series is a collection of essays on the weekly Torah portion by se­lected faculty of Yeshivat Har Etzion. The es­says use an innovative methodology called “the literary-theological method” which com­bines traditional interpretation with the schol­arly disciplines of literary analysis, geogra­phy, archeology, and history, to produce new, eye-opening understandings of the biblical narrative. Inspired by Rabbi Yehuda Amital, (zt”l), and Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein—found­ing heads of Yeshivat Har Etzion—the meth­odology has proliferated throughout oth­er advanced learning institutions within the Modern Orthodox world, reviving and revolu­tionizing the study of Tanach.

“The reactions to this series—from teach­ers and students, rabbis and laypeople—have been beyond our expectations,” says Rabbi Reuven Ziegler, chairman of Koren’s editorial board and founder of Yeshivat Har Etzion’s Isra­el Koschitzky Virtual Beit Midrash, where these essays first appeared. “A scholarly, literary anal­ysis of Tanach opens your eyes to new structur­al patterns and themes in the text, while high­lighting the religious meaning of the biblical narrative.”

Each volume in the series features essays by such leading scholars as Rabbis Yaakov Med­an, Mordechai Sabato, Yair Kahn, Yehuda Rock, Amnon Bazak, Yonatan Grossman, Yoel Bin- Nun, Chanoch Waxman, Menachem Leibtag, Ezra Bick, Rabbanit Sharon Rimon, and Dr. Yael Ziegler. Having garnered wide acclaim for its depth, innovation and perceptiveness, this se­ries sets a new standard for all future study of parashat hashavua.

Torah MiEtzion is published by Maggid Books, a division of Koren Publishers Jerusalem that offers new approaches to Jewish texts and themes from the world’s leading rabbis, schol­ars and philosophers. The series is published in cooperation with Yeshivat Har Etzion.

Torah MiEtzion is available online and at lo­cal Jewish bookstores.
