This Soncino edition of the five books of Moses and Haftorahs with extensive introductions, notes and commentaries prepared under the editorship of the former Chief Rabbi Dr. J.H. Hertz has been hailed as a great scholarly achievement by authorities of the Bible everywhere. The merit of the work, originally published in five volumes and representing the untiring efforts of a decade lies in the fact that its commentary is exactly suited to the requirements of the general reader. The notes are brief and free from technicalities. They aim at the elucidation of the Text and the exposition of the spiritual and ethical teachings of the Torah. A vast literature has been sifted, apart form the standard Jewish and non-Jewish commentaries and illuminating extracts which are included in the notes. While reproducing all the advantages that made the original edition successful, and interesting features which greatly enhance its value and utility. In place of the Revised Version which was originally adopted as the Translation, the American Jewish Version has been substituted. This translation has been universally accepted as conforming more faithfully to traditional Jewish interpretation. Secondly, the work has been carefully planned so as to occupy a single volume only in place of the original five. This copyright Edition, published under the authority of the Trustees of the late Dr. J. H. Hertz, accordingly presents in one light and compact volume over 1,000 comprehensive pages of Hebrew Text, English Translation and Illuminating Notes.
