by Rabbi Ari D. Kahn
Director of Foreign Student Programs, Bar-Ilan University
For many years, and in many forums, Rabbi Ari Kahn of Bar-Ilan University has been teaching the words of the Torah. His weekly email essays on the parasha, received weekly by 6,000 readers worldwide, are now to be made available in print, in this new book, Explorations.
Drawing upon the vast reservoir of rabbinic literature -- from Talmud to Midrash, from Zohar to the chassidic masters -- Rabbi Kahn combines the mystical explorations of kabbala and chassidism with a highly-intellectual and broad-minded approach to Torah study. He applies psychology, literature and Jewish history to the understanding of esoteric midrashim and the Zohar. The result is a beautiful mosaic of Torah learning.
Rabbi Ari Kahn is Director of Foreign Student Programs at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, where he also lectures in Jewish studies, and he is a senior educator at the Aish HaTorah College for Jewish Studies. He received his rabbinic ordination from Yeshiva University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary where he studied with Rabbi Yosef Dov Soloveitchik.
