These three Books are the bridge between the destruction of the First Temple and the construction of the Second Temple after the Babylonian Exile.

The Book of Daniel describes the religious tenacity of the young Jews in exile; Chananya, Mishael, and Azariah in the furnace; Daniel in the lions' den, the handwriting on the wall, the downfall of Nebuchadnezzar's empire, and the mysterious dating of the coming of Mashiach.

The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah relate the return to the Land and the building of the new Temple, in the face of ferocious opposition and slander by the enemies of the newly arrived Jews.

Brilliantly edited and augmented by Rabbi Menachem Davis, based on the work of Rabbi Hersh Goldwurm Roberts and Rabbi Yosef Rabinowitz, this new volume does justice to the Text. Their work brings us new dimensions of understanding and beauty. It lets the verses speak to us - in language, in outlook, in aspiration for spiritual growth.

This outstanding new work has a wide array of features:

  • A new English translation, firmly grounded in traditional sources

  • A commentary culled from classic sources and presented gracefully and literately

  • Newly set, accurate Hebrew text of the Tanach

  • Newly set Hebrew commentaries of Rashi, Metzudos Zion and David and other Commentaries, so you can study on many levels

  • Introductions and explanations of difficult concepts

  • Lightweight, opaque, acid-free paper with reinforced binding, for decades of use

  • Gilded page heads

  • Ribbon place-marker
