Chumash (Torah) & Nakh (Prophets & Writings)

  •  Stone Edition Chumash  Artscroll - English/Hebrew edition of the Torah with an anthology of the classic commentaries.
  • Stone Edition Tanakh Artscroll - English/Hebrew edition of the entire Hebrew scriptures with minimal commentary and reference.
  • Midrash Rabbah: Bereshis & Noach – Moral, ethical, and homiletic insights into the subtle nuances of the Torah’s narrative. Lots of material relevant to Noahides.
  •  Rashi’s Commentary on the Torah (Artscroll Sapirstein Ed. Item# SRAHS) – Rabbi Shlomo Yitzhaki’s commentary lays draws upon the entire corpus of Midrash, Talmud, etc. to explain the events of the Torah. Although Rashi writes many times “I only come to explain the plain meaning of the text,” his commentary does much more than deal with “plain meanings.” Rashi is viewed as the “starting point” for any question on the Chumash.
  •  Ramban’s Commentary on the Torah (Artscroll Ed. Item# SRBNS) – in the 13th century Ramban (Rabbi Moshe Bar Nachman, also called Nachmanides) wrote a commentary analyzing Rashi’s remarks and considering alternative explanations. Reading Rashi alongside the Ramban really conveys the “whole picture.”
  • The Torah Anthology: Beginnings [Beraishis & Noah] (Moznaim Item#930153-2) – an 18th century commentary by Rabbi Yaakov Culi. Originally entitled Me’am Loez, it weaves together commentary, law, ethics, and mysticism to flesh out a practical understanding of the Torah. It is also very enjoyable to read.


  • Tractate Sanhedrin (Artscroll Schottenstein Ed. Vol. 48 Item# DTSA2) – These pages contain most of the Talmud’s discussion of the Noahide laws. Remember that not all of the opinions brought in the Talmud are actual law. Knowing and deriving the Talmud’s conclusions is a skill that must be learned. It is important to learn this with a study partner or someone who has established skills in learning Talmud.

Mishneh Torah - Maimonides compiled the first complete statement of all Torah law from the Talmud, Midrashim, and other texts. It a monumental work, yet not without its flaws. Notably, Maimonides rarely quoted his sources or explained his rationales. Torah scholars have spent centuries reconstructing his reasoning and method for understanding the Torah. Of course, this may be exactly what Maimonides wanted. Although the halacha, actual law, does not always follow Maimonides, his writings are essential for both Jews and Noahides desiring to know God’s expectations of them.
