what’s groundbreaking about chic? is’t the idea about content here?

many of the pictures shown are for promotional purposes only. Meaning you won’t see all the pictures in the final product.
It’s a chumash, after all. Not a brochure for a weekend retreat…

As a teacher in a pluralistic day school, this can be a great resource for delivering classic text in modern packaging.

If you bothered reading the article you wouldn’t need to ask such brain-numbing questions. The idea of this Chumash is primarily the fact that it presents an anthology of pirushim spanning the entirety of Torah She’be’al Peh, beginning from the Gemara and Midrash, Rishonim and Achronim, all the way to our times. Chassidus and the Rebbe’s Torah are of course a central component, presented within the context of the full gamut of pirushim on Torah. But the book is NOT ONLY enjoyable because of its fullness of experience (400 Sages an Mystics). It is also a great product because it’s… Read more »

You have a point there, they really seem almost identical. After all, they both use Hebrew and English texts, both have pages that turn, etc.

Great job!
Guest
Great job!

I got hold of a stray copy and am using it for teaching. WOW! You have no idea how great it is! It’s like having a real professional text book for Chumash. Kudos to all involved in its production (whether they are THE writer, or help the writer…)

Haha very funny. I’m not trying to bash this new chumash, I’m asking a serious question:Does anyone know, content-wise, what the main difference is between this and the Gutnick? From the description, they sounded very similar, both trying to focus on a clearer but deeper understanding of Chumash, in English, based on chassidus. So is it just the style that’s different, is the focus on different types of meforshim, etc.?

who else?
Guest
who else?

Besides Yanki Touber and Baruch Gorkin, who else is involved in this project?

OK, seriously. The Gutnik chumash focuses on the Rebbe exclusively. The new chabad.org chumash is an anthology of over 400 meforshim. Two completely different products.

In terms of content, a better question would be, “how is it different than the ArtScroll chumash?” And the short answer to that is that in addition to all the nigle meforshim, the chabad.org chumash features penimus haTorah – kaballa, chassidus (of all stripes).

A sample of a new Chumash titled “The People and The Book” was an attraction at the Kinus. Author Yanki Tauber was showered with praises. Clusters of Shluchim were observed at the International Kinus Hashluchim perusing through chic black books embossed with just five words “The People and The Book.” The fanfare was around a sneak peek booklet of a groundbreaking new project said to revolutionize Chumash study online and in print. Their enthusiastic reactions focused on everything from the scholarship underpinning the project to the value it had in presenting the Rebbe’s approach to Chumash to baalei batim. Rabbi… Read more »
