Product Description

In this selection from Rabbi Pini Dunner’s weekly articles on the parsha you will discover that no topic is off limits, no information is too obscure, and no idea is too remote that he won't write about it and connect it to the Torah portion. Rabbi Dunner delights in embracing the widest possible range of knowledge, reveling in both breadth and depth, in order to demonstrate that whatever the topic or idea may be, it can always be found somewhere in the Torah, or at least the solution to the puzzle or problem it presents can be sourced in the Torah. As Rabbi Dunner writes in his introduction: “There is no such thing as a ‘code of silence’ in Judaism.” Taking his lead from the sages of the Talmud, Rabbi Dunner leaps head-first into any subject that comes his way, devouring it in every vivid detail, and then finding its reflection in the foundational text of Judaism, the Torah. Rabbi Dunner's articles on the weekly parsha are truly unique. The format is simple: he takes a general interest topic, dissects it, and then brings in an interesting insight from the Torah portion to shed light on the topic at hand. The connections are often nonintuitive, and always original. Rabbi Dunner's articles are published as a weekly column in Algemeiner, and can also be found on his website: www.rabbidunner.com. Now, for the first time, they are available for the book-reading public, opening up Rabbi Dunner's knowledge and wisdom to a new audience.
