Jewish Encounters Sweepstakes

Click here to sign up for the Schocken e-newsletter  and automatically enter a contest to win a copy of the newest addition to Schocken/Nextbook’s Jewish Encounters series. Already selected as one of the “Best Books of 2009” by Publishers Weekly, RASHI, by Nobel Peace Prize winning author Elie Wiesel, introduces us to the towering figure of Rashi—Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki—the great biblical and Talmudic commentator of the Middle Ages.

Both beginners and advanced students of the Bible rely on Rashi’s groundbreaking commentary for simple text explanations and Midrashic interpretations. Wiesel, a descendant of Rashi, proves an incomparable guide who enables us to appreciate both the lucidity of Rashi’s writings and the milieu in which they were formed.

Good luck!
