The distinguished scholar and educator, Rabbi Ari Kahn, presents a series of strikingly original interpretive essays on the weekly parsha, noteworthy for their novel approach. Drawing upon the vast reservoir of rabbinic literature–from Talmud to Midrash, from Zohar to the chassidic masters–Rabbi Kahn combines the mystical explorations of kabbala and chassidism with a highly intellectual and broad-minded approach to Torah study, as he applies psychology, literature and Jewish history to the understanding of estoreric midrashim and the Zohar. Rabbi Kahn takes you on an exhilarating journey as his book sheds new light on some of the most difficult narratives of the biblical text.
“Rabbi Ari D. Kahn’s book series, Echoes of Eden, contains extraordinarily sophisticated essays on the weekly Torah reading…His method rests on plumbing traditional commentaries, alongside mystical glosses and less-well-known kabbalistic commentaries on the Bible, and eliciting over-arching concepts that cross chapter boundaries.In doing so, he teaches us how the Bible has recurring, emphatic moral themes.”
-David M. Weinberg of The Jerusalem Post
