Prepared by eminent rabbis and scholars, these essays explore diverse, sometimes controversial, topics relating to Bible study, such as biblical archeology, marriage and family, revelation, and justice.The Etz Hayim Study Companion has been prepared specifically to help readers understand and appreciate these exceptional essays.Each original Etz Hayim essay appears in its entirety in the study companion, accompanied by an insightful summary and thought-provoking questions designed for individual or group study. The study material not only leads to a deeper understanding of the biblical text itself, but also presents discussion topics to enhance the learning experience. Included in the volume is a foreword by David Wolpe and a helpful guide to making the best use of the book by Jacob Blumenthal.
