    Do you have ten minutes? That’s all it takes to be uplifted by the insightful commentaries on each week’s Parsha and special Shabbosim and occasions throughout the year that make up this magnificent volume.

    Beginning with an attention-getting chapter heading that entices the reader to explore, each section continues with a pivotal pasuk. Then follow the words of a classical commentator. At this point, the author poses a thoughtful question, and the rest of the chapter answers this query. With readable prose and examples that we modern beings can relate to, the difficulty is resolved. Sidebars elaborate on and elucidate the issues raised and provide insights into their resolution.

    One example: With the heading “Make Sure Brain Is On Before Putting Mouth in Gear,” the commentary on Parshas Vayechi asks the question: “Why didn’t Yaakov tell Yosef the reason [he buried Rachel where she died and not in a more dignified location] during all those years?” Rabbi Shafier delves into the sensitive topic with a lucid and multi-faceted discussion, and concludes with a satisfying answer to the query and a message for us: “From seeing their [the Avos’] sensitivity to others we can become conscious of the power HASHEM gave us called speech. Our words can be a source of great comfort and support to others, or they can be callous, biting words that cut away at the soul of those around us. With speech, we can build worlds. . .or destroy them.”

    The Shmuz on the Parsha 2 is a worthy successor to the first volume. Its coffee-table-book size and attractive layout will make it a staple for Shabbos meal sharing and for inspiration and food for thought any time. Readers wanting to know more—and after the enlightenment of Rabbi Shafier’s comments, they will—are invited to listen to further insights on Shmuz.com. A specific shmuz is included after each chapter, and the book provides a list of all available topics. Rabbi Ben Tzion Shafier’s inspirational and thought-provoking words make this book a classic that belongs in every Jewish home.
