THE TARYAG COMPANION
The Taryag Companion is Rabbi Jack Abramowitz’
most ambitious project to date. Not only does it include thorough and incisive explanations of all 613 mitzvos (according to the list of Maimonides) in a surprisingly readable fashion, the supplemental materials will enlighten readers on a broad array of related topics, from the 13 foundations of the Jewish faith to the 19 blessings of Shemoneh Esrei and from the 24 Books of the Jewish Bible to the 63 tractates of the Oral Law. Never before has so comprehensive an overview been so concise.
