About this product
- DescriptionA NEW 2009 REVISED EDITION Gorgeous commentary, according to Kirkus Discoveries in its review of Rabbi Halevi's work. Halevi shines new light on a very old story, offering a brilliant interpretation of perhaps the most influential piece of scripture ever written... Her new tome is a targum -- basically a hybrid of translation and commentary -- of the opening chapters of Genesis. . .Halevi fills her elaborately footted expansion on the story of Adam and Eve (or Havah) with alternate translations, interpretive traditions, linguistic clarifications and explanatory dialogues. . .The author has an easy familiarity with modern biblical scholarship and willingness to parse stale orthodoxies. Her discussions of gender and theodicy are particularly piercing. 'Adam and Havah' offers a myriad of joys.
- Author BiographyBesides her ordination from Hebrew Union College, Rabbi Shira Halevi holds a double master's degree in Hebrew Letters and Hebrew Literature. She has fourteen years experience teaching Biblical Hebrew, Bible Studies and Talmud-Torah.
