OU Press will celebrate its publication of the Chumash Mesoras HaRav Sefer Shemos, The Neuwirth Edition, the Book of Exodus with commentary based on the teachings of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, on Sunday, February 22 at 8:00 p.m. at Congregation Rinat Yisrael, 389 West Englewood Avenue, Teaneck.
Rabbi Soloveitchik, “the Rav,” was known as the towering rabbinic thinker of the twentieth century as well as a master of Biblical exegesis. OU Press, the publishing arm of the Orthodox Union, presents the Chumash Mesoras HaRav series compiled and edited by Dr. Arnold Lustiger with the profound insights of Rabbi Soloveitchik on the Chumash – the Five Books of Moses – with his commentary appearing on the same page as the Bible text.
Featured speakers at the Chumash Mesoras Harav Sefer Shemos event include Rabbi Steven Weil, Orthodox Union senior managing director; and Rabbi Yosef Adler, dean of the Torah Academy of Bergen County and rabbi of Congregation Rinat Yisrael.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
