The Torah, Bible of the Jews, has a fresh and powerful newcomer. Torah translations are guided by a variety of approaches, and a great deal of debate occurs over which most effectively communicates. Most translations, however, suffer distortions produced by author biases and personal theology. Rather than hide translation decisions, the Gutnick edition clearly demarcates where it has borrowed interpretations going to the length of indicating those points with parentheses. The result is an honest and unswerving effort that also affords the reader outstanding readability and an enjoyable, engaging encounter with the text. Features a leather-style cover with reinforced binding.

Also Features:

Classic Commentary drawn from Rabbinic commentators, Midrash and Talmud.

Full Hebrew text of Rashi and Onkelos in crisp, clear type.

Hundreds of Chassidic insights into Chumash from the Lubavitcher Rebbe

Full Text of Haftaros According to All Customs (Ashkenazic, Chabad & Sefardic)

Review:

"If I could have only one translation on a desert island, it would be this one."

"To my mind, there is no other published work that begins to rival this volume."
RABBI NORMAN LAMM, CHANCELLOR, YESHIVAH UNIVERSITY

"A monumental contribution to the understanding of Torah."
KAREN BACON, DEAN, STERN COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, YESHIVAH UNIVERSITY

"Beautifully produced and lovingly edited, this work is an invaluable addition to the library of Jewish scholarship and one which reminds us, yet again, of the towering stature of the Lubavitcher Rebbe as a teacher and exponent of Torah."
PROFESSOR JONATHAN SACKS, CHIEF RABBI OF THE UNITED HEBREW CONGREGATIONS OF THE COMMONWEALTH

"Rabbi Miller has gathered the teachings of the Rebbe on Chumash... there was nobody in his generation who merited to spread Torah, to expand it and strengthen it, like him... I offer you encouragement in your work."
RABBI ISRAEL MEIR LAU, FORMER CHIEF RABBI OF ISRAEL

"As you open the Chumash you immediately appreciate the time and effort that was put into making the Chumash highly readable and easy to understand... anyone can appreciate this Sefer by his careful selection of words to translate and explain difficult themes... The layout of this Chumash makes it perfect for synagogue use."
SHIMON GOLDING, THE JEWISH PRESS

"Original, authentic, fascinating & enlightening."
RABBI PINCHAS STOLPER, LAKEWOOD NJ, FORMER EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE ORTHODOX UNION

"...A beautiful and enduring binding, the clear and illuminating print, and the fine paper... It offers a succinct synopsis of selected passages from the prolific treasure of the Rebbe's profound and wide-ranging insights on the Chumash. The original versions go into great details... The editor, however, managed to make them very readable and accessible..."
RABBI J. IMMANUEL SCHOCHET, NOTED AUTHOR AND LECTURER

"With the release of this Chumash... new windows were opened up to the public, into the Rebbe's interpretations of the Torah... The accomplishment is great and the zechus is overwhelming..."
RABBI YEHUDA LEIB SCHAPIRO, ROSH YESHIVA, GREATER MIAMI

"A brilliant piece of work... an English language Chumash suitable for everyday and synagogue use. The execution is ingenious, the language lucid and highly readable, the concepts well-explained."
RABBI YANKI TAUBER, EDITOR CHABAD.ORG

"The handsome Chumash is ideal for those tasting of the Lubavitcher Rebbe's Sichos for the first time, looking for the right word in translation, and as a rich resource for Torah speaking opportunities... outstanding value."
RABBI GERSHON TANNENBAUM, MENAHEL OF IGGUD HARABBONIM OF THE UNITED STATES

"It contains a phenomenal, organized anthology... something suitable for every reader."
RABBI AVRAHAM ZVI WOSNER, RAV AT MACHON L'TORAH U'LHORA'AH, VA'AD HARABBONIM OF VA'AD MISHMERES STAM

"...It contains explanations adapted with expertise by Talmidei Chachomim...a beautiful work."
RABBI GAVRIEL ZINNER, AUTHOR OF SIFREI NITEI GAVRIEL

"Provides the weekly readings in clear style... Although not an academic book, the academic reader concerned with the reception of biblical text will find in it many things of interest."
