Rashi's Torah Commentary : Religious, Philosophical, Ethical and Educational Insights
Rashi's Torah Commentary draws upon comments made by Rashi throughout each of the Torah portions in the Five Books of Moses and extracts the basic thoughts, ideas, and values of Judaism that are embedded in each of his brief comments. The author, Pinchas Doron, fully develops these ideas and shows how Rashi's Torah commentary attained such unparalleled regard.

Rabbi Pinchas Doron was born in Lancut, Poland in 1933. He lived in Israel from 1952 ? 1964 where he was a member of Kibbutz Lavee.

He is the author of many titles, including The War of Truth, Interpretation of Difficult Passages in Rashi, Vols I-IV (Hebrew), and The Mystery of Creation. Rabbi Doron currently lives in Brooklyn.
Pinchas Doron does not really need my approbation, since the great scholars of this generation already approve of his holy work. I come merely to add my blessing that his thoughts may find wide acceptance and that the multitude should benefit from this. -- Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky The honorable author R. Pinchas Doron is a rare person and Torah scholar who expended great labors to interpret difficult passages in Rashi's commentary on the Chumash. He showed me examples of his supercommentary. He also has an approbation from the great Gaon, the Teacher of Israel, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein. Hence he surely does not need my approbation. I only come to strengthen his hands to publish his book for the benefit of those who learn Chumash with the commentary of the holy Rashi, that they should be scrupulous with every single of his words, so as to understand his profound meanings-for all Rashi's words are 'holy of holies' above. -- Rabbi Shimon Schwab
