   A commentary on the books of the Bible based on Rashs commentary on the Talmud compiled by R. Isaac ben Benjamin Zev Mahrshan, chief rabbi of the Hague. In his introduction R. Mahrshan writes that monograph is being published on the fourth hundred anniversary of the birth of Rashi. He notes that Rashi was both a commentator and decisor, so thorough that he did not leave a place for other rishonim (early sages) Rashis works have been st completely studied and commented on what is there to do.that has not already been done? R. Mahrshan decided to review Rashis commentary on the Talmud, selecting those scattered instances where he explains words or verses from the Bible and to range them as a commentary. Also reviewed are entries in Rashis responsa. R. Mahrshan continues to explains his methodology in detail in the introduction. The text is arranged in the order of the books of the Bible; entries consist of the biblical verse, Rashis comment, and its source in the Talmud.
