Detail Description

First volume of the first edition of this discursive commentary on the weekly Torah readings by R. Hayyim Joseph Issar ben Isaac Aryeh ha-Levi Gad. The title-page describes Toldot Bet Yosef as explanations, valued and more desirable than fine gold and pearls which I have selected from old and classical invaluable works and old manuscripts. It informs that R. Gad was born in Kovno and is currently in Johannesburg, S. A. There are approbations from preeminent rabbis, R. Isaac Eisek ha-Levi Herzog, R. Zevi Pesah Frank, R. Moses Rom, R. Issar Zalman Meltzer, R. Meir Solvitz, R. Jacob Moses Harlap, R. Simeon Aaron Polansky, and R. Kosovitsky. Next is the author’s introduction followed by the text which in this volume, is on Sefer Bereshit. The volume opens with an attractive large foldout map of the wanderings and settlement of the tribes of Israel.
