For too many Jewish young people, bar/bat mitzvah has been the beginning of the end of their Jewish journeys. When students perceive the Torah as incomprehensible or irrelevant, many form the false impression that Judaism has nothing to say to them.
Enter the game-changer: the JPS B'nai Mitzvah Torah Commentary shows teens in their own language how Torah addresses the issues in their world. The conversational tone is inviting and dignified, concise and substantial, direct and informative. The narrative summaries, "big" ideas, model divrei Torah, haftarot commentaries, and discussion questions will engage teens in studying the Torah and haftarot, in writing divrei Torah, and in continuing to learn Torah throughout their lives—making it the book every rabbi, cantor, parent, and tutor will also want to have.
Jewish learning—for young people and adults—will never be the same.

David1 Stars Out Of 5Disappointing for serious studentsMarch 22, 2017DavidQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0JPS has a long reputation for providing quality contextual exegetical commentaries on books of the Hebrew Scriptures. Sadly, this is not one of them. The author instead offers popular stories and comedic lines. It may suffice for those interested in very popular preaching containing little context along with a lot of fluff. One example will suffice to illustrate. On Deuteronomy 26:5, "My father was a wandering Aramean", Rabbi Salkin begins: "There was an old television show called 'The Lone Ranger.' The Lone Ranger was a hero in the Old West, and he wore a mask to conceal his identity. Whenever he would leave the scene, people would ask each other: 'Who was that masked man?' "
