Abarbanel’s Commentary Released in Spanish

For the first time, a selection of commentaries on the weekly Torah portion by the medieval rabbinical scholar Don Isaac Abarbanel (1437-1508) has been published in Spanish.

Las Preguntas de Abarbanel: Seleccion de Comentarios sobre la Tora (Questions of the Abarbanel: A Selection of Commentaries on the Torah), was released this week by the Jerusalem-based Amishav organization https://www.amishav.org.il which assists “lost Jews”seeking to return to the Jewish people. The book was written by Abraham Renner, a Torah scholar from Mexico City.

“There is a growing thirst for Jewish texts throughout the Spanish-speaking world,” Amishav Director Michael Freund said, adding, “Since the Abarbanel was a towering figure among medieval Spanish Jewry, it only seemed fitting to make his work available to a Spanish-speaking audience.”
