The First-Ever Collection of Essays on the Weekly Parsha from Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
The Torah is an encounter between past and present, moment and eternity, which frames Jewish consciousness. In this long-anticipated five-volume collection of Parashat haShavua commentaries, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks explores these intersections as they relate to universal concerns of freedom, love, responsibility, identity, and destiny. Chief Rabbi Sacks fuses Jewish tradition, Western philosophy, and literature to present a highly developed understanding of the human condition under God’s sovereignty.
Erudite and eloquent, Covenant & Conversation allows us to experience Chief Rabbi Sacks’ sophisticated approach to life lived in an ongoing dialogue with the Torah. The first volume, Genesis: The Book of Beginnings, was awarded the 2009 National Jewish Book Award.
