Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: The Illuminated Five Scrolls with Introductions & Thoughts about the Megillot. Hebrew / English (Hardcover)
Bring some beauty, meaning, and holiness into your home with this beautiful book!
The Five Megillot (Scrolls) are the ancient Hebrew designation for the Biblical books of Esther, Ruth, Kohelet (Ecclesiastes), Eicha (Lamentations of Jeremiah), and the Song of Songs. Each one is publicly read in Synagogue during various Jewish festivals and commemorations.
One of the most prolific, brilliant, and multifaceted rabbis in recent centuries, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz has been enthralling audiences, congregants, and readers for decade upon decade, and is as strong and penetrating today as ever. While working on his monumental Hebrew translation and commentary on the entire Babylonian Talmud from 1965-2010 he still found time to write over sixty books and countless hundreds of articles on virtually every religious and secular subject imaginable.
In this wonderful and impressive volume, Rabbi Steinsaltz gives wonderful insights to all five books. The Biblical texts themselves are presented in a unique way. The original Hebrew is in the form of illuminated manuscripts with stunningly beautiful full color relevant illustrations and ornate borders, as well as Biblical scribal Hebrew script. The English translation follows each book.
The format is large and luxurious, and features an attached beautiful ribbon bookmark.
