JPS Haftarah Commentary

JPS Haftarah Commentary
Michael Fishbane

Jewish Publication Society
700 pages
ISBN: 0827606915

Published in 2002, this is the matching volume to the fine set of Torah commentaries produced in the 1990s by the Jewish Publication Society. It covers all the hatarah passages for the weekly Torah portions. It also includes all the festival readings and the special shabbats during the year, with particular comments about the sequences of readings and how they fit into the annual reading cycle. Backgound essays about the books from which they are taken complement the main commentary. As with the other volumes in the set, the full Hebrew text is given, together with the new JPS translation and extensive notes and commentary by an expert commentator, paying attention to both critical scholarship and traditional sources. There are many notes to the commentary. Well worth owning, we recommend these commentaries to all serious students.
