In The Heart of Torah, Rabbi Shai Helds Torah essaystwo for each weekly portionopen new horizons in Jewish biblical commentary.
Held probes the portions in bold, original, and provocative ways. He mines Talmud and midrashim, great writers of world literature, and astute commentators of other religious backgrounds to ponder fundamental questions about God, human nature, and what it means to be a religious person in the modern world. Along the way, he illuminates the centrality of empathy in Jewish ethics, the predominance of divine love in Jewish theology, the primacy of gratitude and generosity, and Gods summoning of each of uswith all our limitationsinto the dignity of a covenantal relationship.
