God gave the Torah to Moses and our ancestors at Mount Sinai thousands of years ago. Rabbi Charna Klein continues the tradition in this scholarly work, interpreting the Torah’s fifty-four chapters. Klein presents interpretations from ancient sages to modern commenters and adds original interpretations on important topics such as creation, evolution, cultural and societal development, gender and sexual diversity, and others. The analysis of Hebrew words, their numeric valuation (gematria), and the Torah codes is revelatory. The author applies scientific lenses from physics to anthropology and archeology demonstrating the comparability of Torah and scientific knowledge and concepts. Rabbi Klein explains the concepts of Kabbalah to reveal deep mystical structures and meanings embedded in the Torah text.
