Chaim Grade and Rashi

"He once told me, 'I can pick up a Chumash and study it without wearing a yarmulke, but when I look into Rashi - in the Chumash or the Talmud - heybt mir on der kop tzu brennen.' (I feel my head starting to burn)."

-Curt Leviant (Grade's translator)
Jewish Review of Books, Winter 2011, p. 51

  1. Chumash is chumash but Rashi is like your father sitting with you and helping your learn. Of course there's an emotion attached there.
