The Annual Tanakh Yemei Iyun - virtual this year - was a spectacular success. Hope you enjoyed!


RABazak Starting Point210

In Starting Point, Rav Amnon Bazak, a leading figure in the contemporary renaissance of Tanakh study, presents hundreds of short studies in the peshat of parashat hashavua. Each parasha has about seven units. These enable a basic understanding of the parasha and serve as a basis for meaningful discussion of the central ideas within each parasha. The book is both an aid to preparing divrei Torah as well as an introduction to the study of peshat in general. Many of these studies have been presented before in different formats. They have been edited and collected here in a new, expanded edition. Kodesh Press is offering this title  now at 20% off, and is offering that discount on all the books in their catalog at the same time! Go to https://kodeshpress.com/ to order with code GUSH2020. The entire transaction and delivery process is being handled by Kodesh Press. Please note that, at this time, the book is available only in North America.
