Item description for Ramban (Nachmanides): Commentary on the Torah (5 Vol. Set) by Ramban (Nachmanides)...

Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman, the 13th century Jewish leader and scholar known as Ramban, earned himself a place alongside Rashi as one of Judaism's primary Torah commentators. His commentary, which encompasses a vast panorama of Jewish learning, language, halachah, aggadah, philosophy, Kabbalah, and history offers a penetrating analysis of the Torah that will both enlighten and inspire. Rabbi Dr. Chavel's elegant English translation is based on the original Hebrew manuscripts. Insightful notes offer clarification of Ramban's commentary and provide his sources.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ramban (Nachmanides): Commentary on the Torah (5 Vol. Set)?

Excellent  Jul 16, 2008
Without being a biblical scholar one can get a great deal out of the Commentaries. The disputed meanings of this and that phrase going from the supposed "original" to translations and back to more up to date Hebrew
(which is still ancient) to "modern" commentaries of RASHI and Maimonides
and some others as well as ancient commentaries deal with the history of the linguistics as much as with meaning. The stance of Akiba is adopted by RAMBAN, which emphasizes underlying principles over exact wording.

Remarks on the TORAH prior to the actual commentary are quite interesting in light of subsequent events. Nachmonides says that the TORAH is an infinite well of knowledge which none can master fully. There is nevertheless deminishing returns on this study for all but the specialist.
The same words of RAMBAN may be said with greater reality and usefulness regarding science. Turning to some degree against TORAH study is essential for the existance as scientists and as Jews of such persons as Einstein and the many great, though somewhat lesser figures.

It is fun to read, though I think the translator left out a good deal. It is a small fault in such a good work. In other words the commentary should be advertised as an abridgement as well as a translation.

The notes of the translating and editing Rabbi are of considerable interest and value without giving dogma. But he does a great job. The faults are minor for such a lucid, readable text.
Incredible masterpiece  Dec 11, 2007
This work is extremely comprehensive and in fact doesn't even contain the actual Torah, just the commentary (most commentaries have the Torah scripture at the top and corresponding comments on the bottom). The Ramban adds deep insights into the Torah, especially the mystical dimension. He also routinely disputes much of Rashi's comments, hence this work provides a different perspective on many issues.
I would definitely consider this a great tool for Torah learning.
For those for whom the Hebrew is difficult   Jan 30, 2005
For those for whom the Hebrew is difficult this work provides an excellent translation of one of the greatest of all Biblical commentators.
