   schema:description ""The central element of Jewish worship is the yearly cycle of reading the first five books of the Bible, the Five Books of Moses, called the Torah in Hebrew. Torah Today, a compilation of fifty-four essays that grew out of Pinchas Peli's Torah column in the Jerusalem Post, comments upon the weekly readings from the Torah. Written in a clear style, each essay brings the reader closer to the rich spiritual world of Torah as it confronts the challenges of modern society. These commentaries, which emulate the traditional midrash, have long been essential reading for Jews throughout the world - families at the Shabbat dinner table, pulpit rabbis, teachers, and students of the Bible. Christians, too, have been among Rabbi Peli's devoted readers. This reissue of Torah Today, with a new preface by Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, makes this classic work available to a new generation of Bible students."--Jacket."@en ;
