motivation and transformation.
I first encountered Rabbi Hirsch's writing with his "From the Wisdom of Mishle" and was impressed by his combination of wisdom, scholarship, piety and common sense. Each paragraph was an invitation to meditation and further study. In his hands, the proverbs became a guide to life.
I began reading his Psalms some nine months ago and find myself comparing his presentation with that of other scholars and commentaries. His work outshines all that I have studied to date. My mother once said that a man should be like a mountain lake, very pure, very clear, and very deep. His commentaries make the simple clear, and yet -as with a mountain lake - that clarity can be profound. I expect that I will be reading and re-reading Rabbi Hirsch for the rest of my life. And each time I open one of his works I will find something simple, something clear, something profound - and something new. I am a better man for having known him through his words.
A work of this stature must be savored in the quiet times we set (please G-d) aside to study and meditate. This is not just a book, but a record of a lifelong golden thread of thought in the heart of a great Rabbi and Tzaddik. Don't hesitate. Purchase it and tresure it for a lifetime. As you grow it will grow with you.
An incredible book - how can someone read/learn Sefer Tehillim without it? Rav Hirsch's insights are penetrating and vital for us. Just one example - 'yeshua' - translated all over as 'salvation'. Well, what is 'yeshua/salvation' anyway? We'd better know because we ask for it numerous times each day in our tefilot! As he does throughout this sefer (and as he is renowned for doing throughout his works) Rav Hirsch examines the root of this word and explains just what it is we're aspiring to/asking for.
