Rashi’s commentary to the Torah is a wondrous blend of depth and simplicity. A single statement of his can be grasped by an elementary school student – and yet confound scholars. Written by a leading interpreter of Rashi, and the fruit of over 40 years of study, this unique work provides tools to unlock Rashi’s secrets – and shows that in truth, they are not secrets at all.

In particular, this fascinating work endows readers with the awareness of rules and patterns that appear consistently throughout Rashi’s writing and thus enables them to appreciate the precision and richness of his language, and to view his words through new eyes. The study of Rashi has never been clearer.
