Between the Lines of the Bible: Exodus. A Study From the New School of Orthodox Torah Commentary (Hardcover)
by Yitzchak Etshalom
The study of Tanakh has always been a staple of Jewish life. The new windows which have opened up in the last century into the rooms of academia – anthropology, archeology, philology and literary analysis, to name a few – have given new perspectives to traditional study and have allowed Orthodox students of our Book of Books to understand, with greater depth and insight, the stories, laws, prophecies and poems that have been our breath for these millennia. In this rich volume, Rabbi Etshalom demonstrates the methodology through which traditional study meets academic rigor, and new insights into the meaning of the text and its import come to light. (“The old will become renewed and the new will become sanctified.” –Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook)
Hardcover, 220 pages publication: 2012
Rabbi Yitzchak Etshalom was educated at Yeshivot Kerem B’Yavneh, RIETS/Yeshiva University and Har Etzion, after which he received rabbinic ordination from the Chief Rabbinate of Jerusalem. While completing his M.Ed. at Loyola Marymount University, Etshalom began his career as an educator and a leading teacher of Tanakh in North America. Rabbi Etshalom resides in Southern California with his wife and five children, where he teaches adults, high school students, and many of all ages via the Internet.
Praise for Between the Lines of the Bible: Exodus
"Addressing the perceived gap between academia and tradition, Rabbi Etshalom successfully presents an argument for integrating discoveries from the disciplined worlds of archaeology, philology, anthropology and literary analysis into the passionate world of religious study of the Bible. The methodology he teaches in this volume is representative of the latest and best of the revival of serious Tanakh study – and gives us much more to anticipate in the future." –Dr. Yoel Elitzur, Hebrew University
"In the second volume of Between the Lines of the Bible, Rabbi Yitzchak Etshalom examines the sacred stories of Shemot through his nuanced understanding of the Torah’s timeless teachings, and brings its insights to the world. As one of the Jewish community’s most respected and gifted educators, Rabbi Etshalom brings his vast experience inside and outside the classroom to life through his words and wisdom." –Richard M. Joel, President and Bravmann Family University Professor, Yeshiva University
