In the calm before the crusades, one man forever changed the way the world would understand the bible
RASHI-A Light After the Dark Ages
Set in the 11th Century, "Rashi" is the story of a unique hero, a Torah commentator who lived at the beginning of the Reign of Terror - The Crusades.
A winemaker by trade, Rashi, in an age of ignorance and illiteracy, taught his daughters to read and write. He debated politics and theology with his Christian neighbors, and delved into the deeper mysteries of the Bible.
Confronting the violent turn of history, brought on by the Crusades, Rashi defended his people's rights to spiritual choice and freedom.
In his almost 900 year old commentary, Rashi opens the doors to the subtle wisdom and eternal truths of the Bible.
To understand Rashi is to understand the story of the Jews. So come back in time - to a world that began with the belief in one G-d.
