Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The authors who created Pirke Avot: A Modern Commentary on Jewish Ethics and Mishlei: A Commentary on Proverbs have worked together again to bring you a contemporary, gender-sensitive translation of Ecclesiastes. Using the classical commentaries of Rashi, Ibn Ezra, and others, as well as modern critical scholarship, the authors have produced a line-by-line translation and commentary to accompany the Hebrew text. Related essays and gleanings from other sources are also provided. The book of Ecclesiastes, located in the K'tuvim section of the Tanach, contains both well known and quizzical texts, including the statements "to every thing there is a season" and that, concerning life, "all is vanity." The question remains for us: How can we find meaning for our lives today in this ancient text of wisdom literature? Ideally suited for both individual reflection and adult education, Kohelet: A Modern Commentary on Ecclesiastes is a thoughtful and modern translation for all to read.
