Just what the doctor ordered!

This reading of the Torah excels in all the areas that truly matter. The narrator conveys the story with true emotion. She commands strong and accurate pronuncuation of Hebrew names. The rhythm of the Torah as she reads is perfectly timed. I am a very hard to please critic when it comes to the way this book is read. So many times I hear it being done without conviction and passion. Finally ..... an excellent job has been done here. Thank you. So much. God bless Shabbot Shalom. 😇

A perfectly beautiful book

A book that is the underpinning of the Jewish faith. I find that this is a book with incredible wisdom, knowledge, and general awe. This is a book to be revered and selected as a developmental and maturative piece of literature that is bound to develop and further maturate, any young person coming of age like myself. I enjoyed this book increasingly as it went on and I highly recommended it.

bronze age sci-fi

nothing compares to primitive make believe when it comes to dulling the mind.
i don’t blame the peoples of that era for their lack of knowledge.
the narrator/reader did an excellent job.
