With An Anthology of
Contemporary Rabbinic Expositions
- If one had to make a short list of the greatest of the classic medieval
commentators, Ramban, or Nachmanides, would be near the top of
the list. Rav Moshe ben Nachman was born in Spain in 1194/4934, and
was the crown of that country's golden age of Jewish scholarship for
his whole lifetime, until he was forced into exile because of his spirited
and intellectually successful battle against the strenuous efforts of the
Catholic Church to convert Spain's Jews.
- He spent the last years of his enormously productive life writing his
monumental commentary on the Chumash, beginning it in Spain and
completing it in Eretz Yisrael. Another gem of those final years was
Iggeres HaRamban, the letter in which Ramban set forth eloquently and
pithily the ethical principles by which his son should conduct himself.
Just as Ramban's voluminous works have made us all his students, so his
Letter has made us all his children. Through the centuries, countless Jews
have made it their practice to study Iggeres HaRamban regularly: some
read it and contemplate upon it every day; others do so every week or
- In this book, one of those students, Rabbi Avraham Chaim Feuer,
shares with us what Ramban's Letter has taught him, for, like all the works
of the master, its every word and thought lends itself to introspection and
insight, to situations that face us every day in our personal and public
lives. Beginning with a user-friendly interlinear translation, the author
goes on to comment on the Letter, and then gives a broad selection of
beautiful and thought-provoking insights drawn from the millennia-long
riches of rabbinic literature.
- By sharing with us what Ramban has taught him and the road map of
conduct upon which the Letter has led him, Rabbi Feuer becomes a guide
and inspiration to the countless sons and daughters in all generations to
whom Ramban's Letter is addressed.
