With great joy and praise to HKB”H, we’re thrilled to share the wonderful news that the NEW, beautiful, and modern, Hebrew translation of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch’s Torah Commentary can now be studied (and searched) from AlHaTorah’s Mikraot Gedolot.

It is truly a great pleasure to acknowledge the generosity of Feldheim Publishers, in making this veritable treasure readily available to the public, whether at home, in the office, or on the go. May HKB”H shower His blessings upon them and upon all who have helped make this possible, and grant them the ability to continue to spread Torah throughout the world for many, many, years to come. (We will also be delighted to pass on to them messages from anyone who would like to express hakarat hatov.)

Rav Hirsch’s commentary joins the All Star Team of 19th-20th century commentaries available in the Mikraot Gedolot, which now houses beautiful editions of Shadal, Rav Hirsch, Malbim, Netziv, and Rav David Zvi Hoffmann, in addition to all of the riches of the medieval commentaries. (Be sure to use the Gear icon to select the Parshanim of your choice and customize your Mikraot Gedolot display.) For those who love Parshanut HaMikra, this is a truly momentous occasion and an amazing opportunity for Torah study; let’s make the most of it!

Here are a few sample links to profound interpretations found in Rav Hirsch’s commentary in Sefer Devarim:

On the connection between the judicial system and Parashat Reeh

On the difference between prophets in the kingdoms of Yehuda and Yisrael (towards the end).

On war exemptions and the importance of a strong home front
