Item Description...
This book, designed for students of the Hebrew Bible and medieval exegesis, presents a small part of the work of R. Samuel ben Meir (Rashbam), the grandson of Rashi and one of the leading figures in Rashi's school of exegesis in northern France. The authors show by their editing of the text, in translation and in introduction, the specific and unique contributions which Rashbam makes, not only to the understanding of Qoheleth, but to the text of the Hebrew Bible as a whole. They will surely stimulate research into the whole area of medieval exegesis. Rashbam is a Hebrew acronym for Rabbi Shmuel son of Meir (c1085-c1158). His father was Meir ben Shmuel and his mother was Yocheved, the daughter of Rashi. Like his grandfather Rashi, the Rashbam was a biblical commentator and Talmudist. He was also a leading French Tosafist. He was the older brother of the Tosafist Rivam and the Tosafist Rabbeinu Tam, also known as Jacob ben Meir. He was a colleague of Rabbi Joseph Kara. Rashbam was born in France in the vicinity of Troyes. He learned from Rashi and from the Riva. He was the teacher of his brother, Rabbeinu Tam. His commentary on the Torah is renowned for its stress on the plain meaning (peshat) of the text. This approach often led him to state views that were somewhat controversial (thus resulting in the omission of his commentary on the first chapters of Genesis in many earlier editions of the Pentateuch). Parts of his commentary on the Talmud have been preserved, and they appear on the pages of most of tractate Bava Batra (where no commentary by Rashi is available), as well as the last chapter of tractate Pesachim. Rashbam earned a living by tending livestock and growing grapes, following in his family tradition. Known for his piety, he defended Jewish beliefs in public disputes that had been arranged by church leaders to demonstrate the inferiority of Judaism.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Making Kohelet frum  Oct 13, 2009
In this 12th-century commentary, Rashbam makes Kohelet out to be a pious Jew like himself- proof that even this short book is open to a variety of interpretations!

I only found one statement that perhaps could not fit into some Orthodox commentaries today: Rashbam's statement that profound wisdom (i.e. mystical speculation) is something that "men neither need nor are conversant with." By contrast, today's Orthodox liturgy is heavily influenced by the Zohar and similar mystical works.

The long introduction is only for grammarians and other specialists; casual readers probably shouldn't bother with it.
