Palant David. Talks About Week Chapters. - M.: CIS Jewish Studies Institute. - 2002.
Rabbi David Palant's new book is dedicated to the traditional element of Jewish life - studying of Torah week chapters.
"Dvar Torah" is a talk, held during the family Shabbat meal. It is an important part of the Shabbat celebration in Jewish tradition.
PAccording to the usual Judaic division, Torah has 54 week chapters. Thus reading of the Pentateuch finishes with the year cycle.
The book gives examples of analysis of selected chapter extracts. They are accompanied by a topical commentary. These examples are very similar to traditional Shabbat talks.
Issues, discussed in this book, will be interesting and useful for Jewish families.
