by Rabbi Jack Abramowitz
The Shnayim Mikra Companion collects the aliyah-by-aliyah synopses of every parsha that appear daily online as part of the Orthodox Union’s Shnayim Mikra (www.ouradio.org/mikra). This handy volume, written in clear and engaging language, enables readers to get a quick overview of the weekly Torah portion, incorporating the interpretations of the Talmud, Midrash and traditional commentators. The Shnayim Mikra Companion goes perfectly alongside Rabbi Abramowitz’ Nach Yomi Companion volumes on Neviim (Prophets) and Kesuvim (Writings).
