“Ever since childhood, Rashi has accompanied my with his insights and charm. Ever since my first Bible lessons in the Heder, I have turned to him in order to grasp the meaning of a verse or word that seemed obscure.

“He is my first destination. My first aid. The first friend whose assistance is invaluable to us, not to say indispensable, if we’ve set our heart on pursuing a thought through unfamiliar subterranean passageways, to its distant origins. A veiled reference from him, like a smile, and everything lights up and becomes clearer.

“Of course, it is the Jewish child in me who thanks him. But Rashi’s appeal is addressed to everyone. What I mean is this: his passion for delving in a text into order to find a hidden meaning passed on by generations can move, interest, and enrich all those whose life is governed by study.”


“Wiesel’s contribution to the Jewish Encounters series is an informative gem.”
–Ray Olson, Booklist
