By Rabbi Moshe David Kuhr
For centuries Jews have pored over the weekly parasha with the classic Rashi commentary, aided by supercommentaries that elucidated Rashi's meaning. The Gur Arye was the Maharal of Prague's contribution to our understanding of Rashi; in it the Maharal combined philosophical and kabbalistic insights with straightforward explanations of Rashi's words. This three-volume series presents Dr. Moshe Kuhr's translation of the Gur Arye, which for the first time offers the English-speaking audience a taste of the Maharal's brilliance, along with insightful explanations that further the reader's understanding of the text
Rabbi Yehuda Loewe (1512 1607), known as the Maharal of Prague, was one of the greatest sages of the Jewish people. However, his profound Torah insights have been inaccessible to the English-speaking public until now. The second and third volumes of Gur Arye, Maharal s commentary on Rashi, are for the first time available to English readers, complete with source annotations for further in-depth study.
