Here at last is a book that parents and teachers can read aloud to discover the joys of the Torah and its lessons, in the short, simple weekly installments that have carried the Jewish people through... More > millennia.
Its focus is mainly on pshat — the plain meaning of the Torah — with a sprinkling of midrash, the lively "stories behind the stories" that are so often crucial to understanding the Torah's text. The distinction between pshat and midrash is clearly delineated to help adults and children gain a clear understanding of the function of each.
This sense of balance, along with the book’s clearly-written, lively Torah narrative, will appeal to a range of ages, convincing parents, teachers and children alike that the story of the Torah is itself exciting and relevant, an integral part of our precious tradition... and a joy to share together.
