There are several published editions of the Torah designed to be used as part of the synagogue service. The most important of these are: The Torah: A Modern Commentary (Reform); Etz Hayim (Conservative); The “Hertz” Chumash (Orthodox); and the Art Scroll Edition (Orthodox). We will explore the differences between these various editions, particularly as to the translations, the commentaries, and the accompanying essays and notes.
