Quote of the week
Be on your guard that you are not ensnared (tinnakesh) to follow after them (Deut. 12:30). This verse elicits a most astonishing and uncharacteristic comment by Rashi. On the form tinnakesh, he states: ‘Targum Onkelos derives it from the word mokesh, a snare, but I say that he did not pay sufficient attention to its linguistic form…’ Considering that Onkelos was the official Aramaic translation, sanctioned by the greatest Talmudic sages of the 1st century, Rashi’s temerity to offer such a withering critique is a measure of his own self-confident authority and greatness.
(Rabbi Dr Jeffrey M Cohen)
