Rabbi Yitzchok D. Frankel

Publisher: Urim Publications

An indispensable resource for those teaching or studying Chumash!

--How are we to understand that, according to Rashi, Adam and Chava were clothed before the sin?

--What is the significance of Aramaic?

--Why is our holy land constantly referred to as Eretz Canaan?

--How did Yaakov Avinu protect himself just by putting some rocks around his head?

--When Eisav appeared Yaakov and his family were all in one camp, so who was in the second camp?

Machat shel Yad is a compendium of compelling resolutions to these and other perplexing questions.

Machat Shel Yad by Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Frankel is the long-awaited Torah tapestry whose strands weave classical topics in Sefer Bereishis with the questions and challenges facing faithful Jewry today. In this choice selection from his popular talks given over many years, Rabbi Frankel combines mastery of p'shat, drush, philosophy and hashkafa to bring the burning issues in Sefer Bereishis to the fore in a highly readable and enjoyable manner. Through Rabbi Frankel's unique analytical style, the reader will surely find intriguing words of Torah, original ideas, and solidly based chiddushim. In the words of one reviewer, "It is everything you thought you knew about Chumash, …but didn't!"

"No, we cannot save even one city," says Hashem.

The prayer of the tzaddik, Avraham Avinu, cannot save a single city. Yet here, Lot, who is absolutely nothing compared to Avraham Avinu, makes a simple request for Tzo'ar and seems to be worthy enough to save the whole city - even though he doesn't even stay there in the end! How did that happen? (Parshas Vayera, page 93)

These and other fascinating questions are answered in the Machat shel Yad, a compelling collection of insights on topics and stories that we think we know... but perhaps don't.
