Bible Dynamics

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

First of all, I would like to express my special gratitude to the Rav Uri-Amos Cherki, one of the most outstanding rabbis and religious philosophers of modern Israel, student of the R. Z.-Y. Kook and R. Y.-L. Ashkenazi (Manitou).  The lessons of R. Sherki allowed  me to explore this new approach to the Torah, on which the Biblical Dynamics commentary is based.

I would like to thank everyone who helped in creating this book at its various stages:
