Nearly twenty-five years after the groundbreaking publication of the first-ever English language liberal Torah commentary, we present The Torah: A Modern Commentary, Revised Edition.

This volume features updated commentary and translations, including a gender-sensitive version of the JPS translation (Exodus through Deuteronomy), with largely gender-neutral God language and a completely fresh translation of Genesis by the late Rabbi Chaim Stern. In addition, the volume is reorganized by parashah and includes a helpful index and aliyot markers, improving upon the 1981 original.

As Rabbi David Ellenson, President of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, states, “This book provide a dazzling compendium of sources both classical and modern, and a variety of voices that will enhance worship and study of everyone.”

This Revised Edition brings contemporary values and a fresh vibrancy to the 1981 Plaut edition, North America’s longtime most popular Torah commentary.

Purchase of this module includes a separate module (TMC-E) which contains the English translation of the Torah.  The Hebrew text will be added to this module in a future free upgrade.
