Readers also enjoyed. About Aryeh Kaplan. Aryeh Kaplan. Born in New York City. Rabbi and Physicist. In his short lifetime he wrote over over 50 books. He later continued his training at different Yeshivot in Israel.
As a graduate student, Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan was described in a scientific "Who's Who" as the most promising young physicist in America. When he decided to devote his overflowing heart and massive intellect to the writing and teaching of traditional Torah values, the Jewish people gained a prolific and brilliant expositor with the uncommon gift of analyzing and presenting the most complex ideas in accessible terms. And when he passed away suddenly at the age of 48 with decades of productive activity still ahead of him, Jewry lost a priceless, irreplaceable treasure.
Aryeh Kaplan left a legacy of the thousands of people whom he touched and elevated, and of the scores of books and papers that flowed from his pen. From biography to Kabbalah, from contemporary movements to cosmic speculation, Aryeh Kaplan was at home. His writing is original and incisive. But most of all, it is always clear and to the point. Every appetite for Jewish themes will be whetted and satisfied by this book. True, to read this collection is to feel a keen sense of loss at the premature passing of a bright star in the Jewish literary firmament.
But it is an intensely satisfying experience as well, because this book is crammed with substance and enlightenment. We put it down enriched by the intellectual company of Aryeh Kaplan, and grateful for this "gift he left behind. He died in at the young age of 48 years. May his memory be for a blessing.

The Living Torah
The Living Torah and The Living Nach are popular, clear and modern English translations  of the Tanakh based on traditional Jewish sources, along with extensive notes, maps, illustrations, diagrams, charts, bibliography, and index. It was and remains a highly popular translation,  and was reissued in a Hebrew-English version with haftarot for synagogue use. Kaplan had the following goals for his translation, which were arguably absent from previous English translations:. Kaplan's work has been hailed as one of the best English translations of the Torah, next to Rabbi Hirsch 's translation, because of his inclusion of the rabbinic elucidation of the text. Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg , a prominent legal decider for the Orthodox community, is reported to have said that the translation is so good that if one is unable to read the Targum Onkelos , which is written in Aramaic , one can fulfill Shnayim mikra ve-echad targum , the obligatory weekly reading of the Torah twice in Hebrew and once with translation, with The Living Torah' s translation.
