Item Description:

Though it is often unacknowledged, Rashi's prolific body of work is partly due to the efforts of his able assistants. His first helpers were his daughters, whom he personally educated as Torah scholars - an anomaly in his times. When these learned women became of marriageable age, Rashi sought the most elite of scholars for them, and their husbands likewise became partners in his dissemination of Torah. In a lecture that combines intellectual history with the warm feeling of family relationships, we see how one Jewish family can shape our entire people.
