One thought on “Books and Academic Articles

  1. Aryeh,
    It was great to see you in san diego. I am the rabbi in seattle who worked with adam rubin. I have been wanting to follow up and learn more about the commentary you mentioned as we walked where a commentator understands the first commandment of the eseret dibrot to be caring for the vulnerable. I know you said it was on your website and the only related thing I found is the first article on your site but don’t think that is the right article. Any chance you can point me in the right direction in hebrew or english? Thanks so much
