The Jewish Innovation

I feel that it is important to concentrate and contemplate the words of the Torah and Rashi when learning. Unfortunately, I find that someone who can accurately translate the words of the Torah and its commentaries and who can remember what he ‘learned’ is considered a Torah genius!
Is this what learning Torah is really about? I don’t think so. I feel that learning has more to do with analyzing the texts. Spending the time to think about what the text says. What it means. What its implications are.

My Sefer includes almost 700 pages (in Hebrew) of Torah thoughts that arose almost entirely from the questions I had when learning Sefer Shemos with Rashi. The questions are for the most part the types of questions that everyone should be asking!

I have received warm approbations for the Sefer, and I hope to be able to publish it so that it can be made available to the Torah-learning public.

The Impact

The Jewish people are known as the People of the Book. My Sefer can help people learn the Torah on a much deeper level – a level that provides them with tremendous connection to the Torah. When a person thinks about the word of Hashem and makes great efforts to understand it, it creates a strong bond.

I hope that educators will learn this Sefer and realize that their students should be asking the same questions that are found in the Sefer. If not, teachers should gently bring their students to ask those questions which are most relevant to the students, depending on their age and background.

What Will You Do with the Money?

The money will go to publishing the Sefer in Israel. Any additional money will be used to pay for typing and editing my handwritten notes on the other parts of the Torah.
Approximately $4000 is needed for printing 500 copies of the Sefer.

The cost of typing and editing the pages I have already written will certainly be more than $1,000, but I hope to cover the costs of preparation of the next volume in the series (Sefer Vayikra) with the money that comes in from selling this Sefer.

I grew up in Teaneck, NJ and moved to Israel 35 years ago. I learned in Neveh Zion and received Semicha from Rabbi Mordechai Friedlander, z"l. I currently work in the hi tech industry and spend most of my spare time learning Torah.I am also the Rabbi of a small shul in Ashdod that caters to people from the former Soviet Union and to Baalei Teshuva. I learn Chumash with Rashi every morning before going to work, and have over 4,400 handwritten pages of Chiddushim. I hope to publish a set of Sefarim on Chumash and Rashi, with an additional volume on the 5 Megillos.
