Distinguished scholar and educator Rabbi Ari Kahn presents a series of strikingly original interpretive essays on the weekly parsha. Drawing upon the vast reservoir of rabbinic literature–from Talmud to Midrash, from Zohar to the Chasidic masters–Rabbi Kahn combines the mystical explorations of Kabbalah with a highly intellectual and broad-minded approach to Torah study, masterfully applying psychology, literary analysis, and Jewish historical perspective to even the most esoteric midrashim. Explorations: Expanded is an exhilarating journey that sheds new light on some of the most difficult narratives of the biblical text.
