WORLD FAMOUS ARTSCROLL SCHOTTENSTEIN TALMUD ELUCIDATION TO APPEAR IN A NEW FRENCH EDITION
Twelve years ago, a revolution hit the English-speaking world of Torah study. Four years ago, it spread to the Hebrew-speaking world. Now it is coming to French-speaking Jews.
That revolution is an elucidation of the Talmud that not only translates, but explains the often complex train of thought. In addition, the editors provide copious notes that further explain the reasoning and point the reader to a rich lode of source material. Tens of thousands of people in the English- and Hebrew-speaking worlds have been able to engage in Talmud study - many for the first time in their lives - thanks to these volumes. The writers and editors have achieved the difficult feat of providing books that are not only popular with sophisticated phrase in this context than lay people, but are widely used by accomplished scholars, as aids in teaching and their own study.
This volume of the forthcoming 73-volume French edition is dedicated by Mme. Lily Safra, in memory of her late husband, Edmond J. Safra, the international banking titan. Safra was the owner of the Republic National Bank in the United States and had major interests in other banks in several countries, until his retirement. He was a legendary philanthropist, who placed major emphasis on traditional Jewish educational and communal causes.
