Book Description

“Like any classic, the Torah appears in different guises with each rereading. Its infinite layers of meaning and depth offer the opportunity to harvest anew, without any fear of exhausting its supply of wisdom, counsel, and kedushah (holiness). To encounter Torah is to encounter God.”
--from the Introduction

In this inspiring collection, Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson illuminates the sacred text at the heart of Jewish spirituality. Enlightening and original, The Everyday Torah brings the ancient text to life with poignant reflections that will guide to you to a deeper understanding of the Torah, of Judaism, of yourself.

"Torah goes its weekly way, and we go ours, and do the two paths ever cross? They cross often in many minds and hearts, but when it is Bradley Shavit Artson who provides their point of intersection, the crossroads widens into a town square."
--Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography

"Every page is a joy to read. Many, many readers will treasure this book."
--Richard Elliott Friedman, author of Commentary on the Torah and Who Wrote the Bible?

"Rabbi Bradley Artson remains one of the most inviting of modern day teachers of Torah. This book will offer needed guidance and inspiration to all who turn its pages."
--Rabbi David Ellenson, Ph.D., president of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, clear and very helpful. December 2, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a very well written aid for daily Torah study. Particularly well suited for those needing some perspective who can't study in the synagogue.

Well done. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it January 1, 2009
Format:Paperback
I love this book. It's very easy read, makes a lot of sense, and makes it convenient to keep up on the parshas when I wouldn't otherwise have the time. I would especially recommend it for people who have busy lifestyles, but are still in need of some weekly (or daily?) inspiration and guidance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! March 15, 2009
Format:Paperback
An insightful, thoughtful companion to the parshot for personal introspection or for discussion and contemplation at the Shabbos table! Topics abound, touching and connecting all aspects of the human experience to the depths of Torah and the wisdom of our sages. Well done!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed October 22, 2012
By Teacher
Format:Paperback
This book is a very superficially written account of Torah. I believe the surface account presented in this book was not for the true student of Torah, but to fulfill a need for its author to get something written for the mass reading market. It may even be described as a so called feel good book for Jews who know very little in the way of their own Judaism. Very disappointing for anyone wanting to glean Torah study to any great depth.
