The Five Books Of Moses: An Easy To Read Torah Translation

Sol Scharfstein

From Booklist
The Torah--the first five books of the Hebrew Bible--are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It is a unique combination of narrative and law, read in synagogues by a trained reader from a parchment scroll written with meticulous care by an authorized, pious scribe, and the reading constitutes a central part of the synagogue service. Scharfstein begins with a brief history of the Torah, the Targum (the Aramaic translation of the Torah), and the two Torah holidays. He discusses the Torah's ornaments and setting, its ceremonies and honors, and he gives a short introduction to each book that explains its most important aspects. The author, who is also the author of numerous children's books and Jewish educational texts, has written a lucid and comprehensible translation. George Cohen
