JPS Bible Commentary Jewish Publication Society

The latest in the JPS Bible Commentary series.The moving story of Ruth, with its themes of loyalty, loving kindness (hesed), and redemption, is one of the great narratives of the Bible. Socially, the Israelites were aware of their responsibility to protect the weak and unprotected among them. Redemption secures the life of the people as a community, not just as individuals. In this story, Boaz fills the familial obligation to marry the widow of a deceased relative who never was able to father children, both to continue the family line and protect an otherwise vulnerable woman. The authors provide a critical, line-by-line commentary of the biblical text, presented in its original Hebrew, complete with vocalization and cantillation marks, as well as the 1985 JPS English translation. The extensive introduction places the book within its historical, literary, and critical context, discusses contemporary interpretations of the story of Ruth, and examines its major motifs and themes, among them: family, marriage and levirate marriage in biblical and ancient Israel, redemption and inheritance, hesed, and the book's connection with the Jewish holiday of Shavuot.

Kniha Zohar Stanford University Press

"Sefer ha-Zohar" (The Book of Radiance) has amazed and overwhelmed readers ever since it emerged in medieval Spain toward the end of the thirteenth century. Written in a unique, lyrical Aramaic, this masterpiece of Kabbalah exceeds the dimensions of a normal book; it is virtually a body of literature, comprising over twenty discrete sections. The bulk of the "Zohar" consists of a fascinating mystical commentary on the Torah, from Genesis through Deuteronomy. This sixth volume of "The Zohar: Pritzker Edition" completes the "Zohar's" commentary on the book of Exodus. Some of the volume focuses on the Dwelling (or "mishkan") built by Moses and the Israelites in the Sinai Desert. The "mishkan" symbolizes "Shekhinah," the feminine presence of God who "dwells" on earth. The construction of the "mishkan" is intended to ensure Her intimacy with the people--and especially with Moses, who is actually called Her husband. The dramatic episode of the Golden Calf receives special treatment. The worship of the calf is seen as a rejection of "Shekhinah." Normally, She would have restrained the wrath of God's masculine aspect and prevented Him from striking Israel; but having been rejected, She instead departed, leaving the people vulnerable. Whereupon the blessed Holy One hinted to Moses that it was up to him to defend Israel from divine destruction. By invoking the three patriarchs, Moses pinned God's arms, as it were, and immobilized Him, saving his people. With the appearance of this volume, "The Zohar: Pritzker Edition" has reached its halfway point. The projected Volumes VII-IX will complete the "Zohar's" main commentary on the Torah. Volumes X-XII will include the "Zohar's" commentary on various other books of the Bible (such as Ruth and Song of Songs) as well as several independent compositions.
