Description:
Avner Moriah is a contemporary Israeli artist, best known for his striking on-site paintings of Israel’s landscapes and his inspiring interpretations of biblical themes. This beautiful book showcases fifty-four pictures, one for each weekly portion (parasha) of the Five Books of Moses, focusing on and visually elucidating particular sections or episodes in the biblical text. Accompanying the pictures is an examination of each of his paintings by Dr. Shulamit Laderman, relating to the particular theme he dwelt on and posing questions for which his visual interpretations might offer answers. The paintings and accompanying texts will not only be sources of interest and pleasure but will also enhance readers’ understanding and appreciation of the Bible.

The Illuminated Torah is sure to bring fresh insight to all who choose this as a guide to accompany their Torah study
