Rabbi Ari Kahn has collected 54 of his thought-provoking short essays on each parashah, in a volume that is sure to spark interest and meaningful Torah and parsha-based discussion. It raises existential and philosophical issues, culling contemporary messages from the sacred, timeless text of the Torah and the rich Rabbinic tradition. In the words of Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein, Rabbi Kahn’s writings are “rooted in text and rooted in values.” Grappling with the challenges presented by the text, the trials and tribulations of Judaism’s founding mothers and fathers, and the philosophical underpinnings of observance, Rabbi Kahn illuminates the remarkably contemporary issues of morality and faith, society and sanctity contained in each Torah portion.
“Rabbi Ari Kahn presents a delightful and easy to read collection of short essays on the weekly Torah portion. Focusing on a specific central question or thought from the weekly reading, the essay expands to offer interesting food for thought and discussion on the matter” – Rabbi Ari Enkin
