You know and use the Stone Edition, which has become the standard English-language Chumash.
But what about the rest of the Written Torah, the Prophets and the Writings?
Where can we go for a sweeping understanding of the text, as understood by the Sages and the classic commentators presented in a way that makes it both accessible and enjoyable to scholar and layman alike?
The first volume of the Rubin Edition Joshua/Judges provided the answer.
Thanks to the brilliance of the ArtScroll/Mesorah team of scholars and writers led by Rabbi Nosson Scherman the tradition continues, with The Rubin Edition of I Samuel and II Samuel in one volume. This translation and commentary on the Prophets is sweeping the English-speaking world, providing new dimensions of understanding and beauty.
