Unrolling the Scroll, Complete Edition + Audio CD Set
Unrolling the Scroll follows the synagogue's annual Torah reading cycle, providing commentary and insights on the weekly Torah portions which are read in the synagogue from Sabbath to Sabbath. This unique format makes it possible to study along with the Jewish community, moving through the whole Torah in one year of weekly lessons.
Peppered with insights from ancient rabbis and anecdotes from modern Christian life, this edition of Torah Club demonstrates the value of Torah for Christian living today.
