Classics. Biur Al HaTorah. Sforno. First Edition. Venice 1567
Classic commentary on the Torah by R. Ovadiah Sforno.
R. Ovadiah Sforno (c.1470-c.1550), in addition to his greatness in Torah excelled in several diverse fields: philosophy, mathematics, and particularly medicine through which he earned a living as a physician. Though written in a deceivingly simple style, the Sforno commentary contains great depth. Several relatively recent seforim make extensive use of the Sforno, most notably R. Meir Don Plotzki in his classic commentary Kli Chemdah. With addendum titled “Kavanas HaTorah”, where the Sforno offers original rationales for the various commandments (Ta’amei HaMitzvos).
Stefansky Hebrew Classics 22. Vinograd Venice 538. Griffo press. 92 pages. 20 cm. Moderate-fine condition. Some worming, and tape repairs (staining) at times affecting text. Modern binding.
