The Hirsch Chumash, Complete Set
Since it first appeared, nearly 150 years ago, the Hirsch Commentary on Chumash has gained worldwide popularity for the breathtaking scope of insight and information it offers to scholar, student, and layman alike.
This expansive work combines history, halacha, hashkafa, and Ta'amei HaMitzvos into one magnificent pattern that stretches brilliantly across all of Chamisha Chumshai Torah. And underlying the commentary is Rav Hirsch's unique approach to Lashon HaKrah: his profound analysis of the letters, root words, and structure of words found in Chumash. To better accommodate today's English speaking public, we proudly present this new translation, published in conjunction with Judaica Press, designed to clearly and accurately convey the meaning of the original text, in its entirety. We invite you to open the new Hirsch Chumash and experience the length and breadth of this magnificent work as never before.
To honor the completion of the new English edition of the Hirsch Chumash, Rabbi Yissocher Frand presented a special shiur, The Hirsch Chumash: An Appreciation of the Wisdom and Timelessness of His Classic Commentary. Click on the link below.

- A wonderful teacher and a very nice edition.Reading in The Hirsch Chumash is a thrilling experience. Rav S.R. Hirsch must have been a wonderful teacher, a real "magister maximus". The formulation of his comments on the Torah puts the reader in front of a great man who was not only a pious Jew but also a German professor who had an impressive command of didactical knowledge. If you happen to be like me, a person who is fascinated by the Torah but with some shortages in his knowledge of Hebrew, then this is THE Chumash to buy. For Rav Hirsch gives you an explanation which frequently delves in the field of the Holy Language. Try to have a good etymological Hebrew dictionary at your disposition, this helps a lot. The printing is a real pleasure. The font is very readable in the Hebrew as well as in the English text, even if your eyesight happens to be a bit deficient. The five volumes have a beautiful binding too.
- Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch BereishisI spent from April 2009 until Dec 2009 working on Bereishis. Every nuance, every Hebrew letter was beyond, beyond anything I had hoped to learn from any book.
I have spent 7 years in Rashi, Ramban, Ramchal, R' Bachya and many more brilliant teachers of Torah. These books flank my desk and I'm always referring to them. I have now added Rav Hirsch's to the reference beauty that surrounds me.
Besides the amazing Torah Rav Hirsch gives over it took my sefer reading skills from so so to finally, big, noticeable progress
