Wow I have that

I bought the Stone Edition - Chumash about 12 - 15 years ago. You are right Lori. Every person should own one. The English translation and commentary verse by verse are exactly what we need to easily understand and learn. Makes a wonderful gift. Each time I read in it I have an aha!! moment.

Thank you

Shalom, Lori,

Reading your article about your donation of one kidney to an unknown person (from the free copy - thank you! - of the booklet "Excursions, Essays on spiritual growth" from Jerusalem) enlightened me; many have asked me why being an organ donor? Would the doctors not strive to save me knowing this up front?

Looking forward to see your website up and running. I need to have my own Torah. Todah!

you can get it from (as of now, it's actually closed for maintenance, but according to the site, should be open late today).

Stone Edition - love it!

I have both the Hertz Commentary of the Chumash published in 1960 that I grew up with, and the Stone Commentary of the Chumash published in 1999. I find the Stone edition very exciting and full of surprises such that my response often is "I didn't know that!" Most people I know who prepare Drashes for the congregation, use the Hertz.
