“Parshah in Just Two Minutes” by Rabbi Eliyahu Shear

“Parshah in Just Two Minutes” was written by Rabbi Shear to provide a concise overview of each of the weekly Torah portions, breaking them down to the 7 Aliyot (plural for Aliyah which is Hebrew for being called up to the Torah). The book meets a few goals:

  • For the person who is new to learning Torah, “Parshah in Just Two Minutes” gives a brief overview which is not overwhelming and whets the appetite to encourage the newby to Torah to want to learn more. The new comer to Torah will also have enough insight to know what to ask for, or what concepts of Torah might be of interest.
  • For someone who is learned in Torah, “Parshah in Just Two Minutes” provides a valuable tool for revision
  • For the busy person who wants to fulfill the practice to read the Torah portion daily but lacks the time to do so, “Parshah in Just Two Minutes” provides a summary that will meet this goal within your busy schedule.

Stay tuned for our next book which is in the process of being prepared to launch!
