Where on the Internet might it be possible to find a summary of the most important midrashim (aggadot) for each parshah in English? Something like The Midrash Says but online. Even less thorough, eg from a kiruv website, is fine, too.

    Define “most important.” – DonielF Dec 18 '17 at 14:48
  • I wouldn't call this a recommendation, but "The Legends of the Jews" by Louis Ginzberg volumes 1-4 is available on Project Gutenberg in English. – Yaacov Deane Dec 18 '17 at 16:04

    @DonielF I think she intends to say the "most common" midrashim discussed by people when talking about the parshas hashavua. – ezra Dec 18 '17 at 21:35

    @SAH You’re welcome. Spread the light...Hanukkah sameach! – Yaacov Deane Dec 19 '17 at 19:39

This is pretty good:


"A condensation of the weekly Torah portion alongside select commentaries culled from the Midrash, Talmud, Chassidic masters, and the broad corpus of Jewish scholarship."


Legends of the Jews, the seminal collection of midrashim by Louis Ginzberg, is available online in English. The advantage of this work is that it culls midrashim from various sources and presents them as one unified continuous story. It can be accessed here.
