Do you dutifully study Shnayim Mikra v’Echad Targum every week?
Do you wish you understood the mysteries of Onkelos’s teachings?
Most of the time, Targum Onkelos is left unexplained and underappreciated. Lessons from Targum Onkelos addresses this by teaching the fundamental yesodos of Onkelos, based on well-known mefarshim and original chiddushim. Using examples from every parashah, the author raises questions on the Chumash and elucidates Onkelos’s interpretation, showing how his one-word changes or additions can hint to an entire Chazal.
This sefer, the first of its kind, will enhance the reader’s appreciation for Onkelos’s translation, shed light on its nuances, and give his insights the prominence they deserve.
