The Rebbe Teaches Rashi

Fifty years ago a tremendous light descended to this world. Torah is G-dly Wisdom, so whenever a Jew learns Torah he is drawing down G-dly light from above. This is especially true when one reveals a novel concept in Torah. How much more so is this true when an entire new methodology of Torah study is revealed; we cannot begin to comprehend the lofty Divine revelation which takes place.  
The Lubavitcher Rebbe taught us how to learn Chumash with Rashi. For many centuries everyone from five year old children through aged scholars have been studying Chumash with Rashi's commentary. What did the Rebbe add? He added an entirely new approach which shows Rashi's commentary in a light in which it has never been seen or understood. The amazing thing is that for the most part the Rebbe's explanations are based on rules which Rashi himself set out. 
In an effort to demonstrate at least to some extent the beauty of the Rebbe's approach and what he has accomplished, I have been working on a way to make these explanations accessible to a broader audience. On this site you will find an outline of teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe explaining one of Rashi's commentaries on each weekly Torah portion. Please be aware that a great deal of work and time goes into each weekly summary.
