I'm looking for a sefer which is a collection of interesting, original and fundamental pieces from the Rishonim on the weekly Parsha. I prefer if they are quotes [the original wording], but also happy if they paraphrase what the Rishonim write.

Any recommendations?

  • Not exactly. I'm looking for a selection of the interesting/fundamental pieces, rather than the entire collection of Rishonic works. There is too much for me to go through weekly; I'm looking for someone who has done the work and highlighted interesting/important pieces.

  • ArtScroll Stone Chumash (though this includes Aharonim too)

What you're looking for is Yesodei HaTorah, which is a compilation by Rav Ahron Lopiansky of the words of the Rishonim which he feels are fundamental to our faith, organized by the parsha.

You can see the first 150 pages of Volume 1 (Bereishis, Shemos) here and Volume 2 (Vayikra, Bamidbar, Devarim) here.


One such work is Moshav Zekeinim al Hatorah. It has a collection of commentaries of the Tosafists and other Rishonim on the Torah by R. Solomon David Sassoon (1915–1985).
