Rashi is most famous for his 900-year-old commentaries on the Torah and Talmud — hands-down the most studied Torah commentaries.
Yet Rashi also played a pivotal role in his own lifetime.
11th century France saw the beginning of the “Reign of Terror” – the Crusades.
Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo ben Yitzchak) guided the Jewish people through many of the trials of that time. A true Jewish hero, he defended the right of the Jews to learn Torah and live a life of spiritual freedom.
This historically-fictional video portrays the life and times of Rashi, featuring the captivating voice of actor Leonard Nimoy.
