Title: Sorosi Bamdinos on Shir Hashirim and Ruth
Author: Rabbi Henoch Levine
Reviewed by Dr. Yochanan Roth

It’s refreshingly rare to welcome a new compendium on the targum of Megillas Shir Hashirim and Ruth (in one volume), just released by Rabbi Henoch Levine. This is the tenth volume in a series by the author, acclaimed for his expertise in targumic studies in general, and for his works on Targum Yonasan Ben Uziel Al Hatorah, in particular. His literary skill in expounding the targumic unique approach to Chumash and the five megillos is legendary and makes his commentary one of the very few, if not the only, comprehensive work on the targum.

The megillah text is newly-set with te’amim in an appealing manner. Rashi is included and newly-reset, as well as the Pirush Toldos Ahron, along with the corresponding targum, lucidly translated to loshon hakodesh in a bold face.

The Sorosi Bamdinos commentary surrounds the targum, and, among the many advantages, it notes variations from that of Rashi and of other authors, and their ramifications to other subjects and topics.

The reader will find in it:

Lomdus in give-and-take discussions among achronim, based on a targumic translation of a verse, expounded in a clear and user-friendly Hebrew, which becomes relevant to the popular lomdishe subjects of yemei Pesach and Shavuos.

Halacha: Contemporary halachic topics, relevant to the laws of shalosh regalim, aliyas haregel, kedushat Yerushalayim bizman hazeh, and a host of allied topics.

Mussar and chassidus teachings, elucidated by the respective movements’ founders and masters.

A guide in avodas Hashem and hanhagos tovos, illustrated in short stories and parables, always quoted verbatim from their sources.

Among the many features included are: More than 400 seforim by rishonim, kadmonim and achronim quoted verbatim, in a concise and relevant form; every book source is highlighted in bold face for easy identification; it contains a complete index of Tanach, Shas, Midrashim, Zohar and poskim as well as a complete topic index and concise gleanings, listed alphabetically, to aid in finding a desired topic, quickly.

In short, this sefer is truly a refreshing wellspring for a mevakesh devar Hashem, where he will find concise, easy-to-follow, relevant divrei Torah in the pardes haTorah.

Sorosi Bamdinos on Shir Hashirim and Ruth, as well as Megillos Esther, and Koheles, and Sorosi on Chamisha Chumshei Torah, may be purchased directly from the author by calling Rabbi Henoch Levine at 347-249-8415 or at your favorite seforim outlet.
