Learning Baal HaTurim



It is a good idea to expose the children from time to time to some of the nuances of interpretation found in the Baal HaTurim, which brings out the richness and hidden complexities of the Torah, and which can bring us to a loftier appreciation of all that Torah is, to an abiding interest in the letters which compost it and their gematrios, and in comparing the expressions and words of the Torah, and so on.

Outside of Chassidus, the Baal HaTurim commentary has made a tremendous impact on my understanding of Torah. I use the artscroll english translation. It is so deep and beautiful and amazing how he is able to probe the words of Torah and bring out the Remez in everything.

I recommend.

I fell in love with Baal Haturim in seventh grade, and he remains my favorite peirush to this day... :)
Oh, and a role model...
