Publisher's Description

Thanks to these generous donors for making the publication of this book possible:
Joel D. and Tammy S. Rubin

The second volume of the acclaimed English edition of Miqra’ot Gedolot

The biblical commentaries known as Miqra’ot Gedolot have inspired and educated generations of Hebrew readers. With this edition, the voices of Rashi, Ibn Ezra, Nachmanides, Rashbam, and other medieval Bible commentators come alive once more, speaking in a contemporary English translation annotated and explicated for lay readers.

Each page of this second volume in The Commentators’ Bible series contains several verses from the Book of Leviticus, surrounded by both the 1917 and 1985 JPS translations, and by new contemporary English translations of the major commentators. The book also includes an introduction, a glossary of terms, a list of names used in the text, notes on source texts, a special topics list, and resources for further study. This large-format volume is beautifully designed for easy navigation among the many elements on each page, including explanatory notes and selected additional comments from the works of Bekhor Shor, Hizkuni, Abarbanel, Sforno, Gersonides, and others.

Editorial Reviews

"JPS should be congratulated for making these works available to a general audience."—Off The Shelf


"Leviticus is a worthy addition to this series. This book of commentary wrestles with ideas rarely appreciated outside of houses of Jewish learning . . . . This book, with its accessible new translation of these commentaries, brings a whole world of learning to the English-speaking Jewish world."—Jewish Book World
