OU Press will celebrate the 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 9:15 a.m. at Young Israel of New Rochelle, 1149 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY.
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.
The featured speaker at the Chumash Mesoras Harav Sefer Shemos New Rochelle event is Rabbi Steven Weil, Orthodox Union senior managing director; there will be introductory remarks by Rabbi Reuven Fink of Young Israel of New Rochelle.
A second event will be held in Teaneck, NJ on February 22 at 8 p.m. at Congregation Rinat Yisrael where Rabbi Weil and Rabbi Yosef Adler will be the featured speakers.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at both events.
