  Product Description
R. Ovadiah Sforno was one of the glories of Italian Jewry, a community that, for many centuries, produced Torah luminaries far out of proportion to it's size. Born in the last quarter of fifteenth century, he experienced the agony and trauma of the Spanish Inquisition, new persecutions in Italy, and Papal enmity. Despite these travails, Sforno grew constantly in Torah, personal stature, and in his gifts to posterity. Though he was one of the great halachic authorities of Italy, his fame rests primarily on his commentaries to many books of the Scripture. However, he wrote extensively on other areas of the Torah as well, and his commentary on Pirkei Avos/Ethics of the Fathers is one of his little known gems. Hardly ever published, this masterpiece is now available in the original hebrew and with an exceptional translation and commentary. The first to render Sforno in English was Rabbi Raphael Pelcovitz, the renowned rabbi emeritus of Congregation Knesseth Israel in Far Rockaway, New York. He distinguished himself with his magnificent rendering of Sforno's Commentary on the Torah. Now he continues his pioneering work with this new volume.
