Editorial Reviews


"Jeffrey Salkin's JPS B'nai Mitzvah Torah Commentary is sure to usher in a new era of Torah study for our young students."—Mark Glickman, CCAR Journal
(Mark Glickman CCAR Journal)

"An excellent resource for students preparing for their b'nai mitzvah or as a text for classes studying the portion of the week. While aimed at teenagers, Salkin offers insights that many adults will also appreciate. His commentary would make a great addition to every synagogue library."—Rabbi Rachel Esserman, Reporter Group
(Rabbi Rachel Esserman Reporter Group 2017-09-15)

“This is a fantastic resource . . . clear, coherent, and easy to understand. It encourages readers to grapple with real issues in the Bible that are relevant to them. It will be incredibly valuable not only to teens preparing to become bar/bat mitzvah but also to adults in navigating, challenging, and connecting to the biblical text.”—Rabbi Danielle G. Eskow, co-founder of
(Rabbi Danielle G. Eskow 2016-09-09)

“Rabbi Jeff Salkin has enabled b’nai mitzvah to learn and teach Torah with a commentary that is wise, helpful, and brilliantly clear.”—Rabbi David Wolpe, senior rabbi at Sinai Temple, Los Angeles, and author of David, the Divided Heart
(Rabbi David Wolpe 2016-09-09)

“This is fantastic! It’s a game-changer for b’nai mitzvah, their parents and teachers. Salkin’s fresh insights remind us how transformative this experience can be.”—Rabbi Aaron Miller, Washington Hebrew Congregation
(Rabbi Aaron Miller 2016-09-09)

“A student just came in to pick her verses for next year’s reading of Tsav, arguably the least accessible of all Torah portions for a twelve-year-old to think about. Grabbing the JPS B’nai Mitzvah Torah Commentary off the shelf, I reviewed the Tsav summary and ‘high points’ with her, and she really came to life, quickly picking her verses of interest. Rabbi Jeffrey Salkin’s scholarship is really a gift to us.”—Rabbi Sim Glaser, Temple Israel in Minneapolis
(Rabbi Sim Glaser 2017-05-19)

"This is a new approach to Jewish learning and is very welcome. I cannot think of a better gift for a young person who takes his place as an adult in the Jewish community."—Reviews by Amos Lassen
(Amos Lassen Reviews by Amos Lassen 2017-05-15)
