Rabbi Yehuda Loewe [1512–1607], known as Maharal of Prague, is credited with the creation of the Golem, but more importantly, served as the rabbinic leader to European Judaism during the sixteenth century. Much of his voluminous work has not been translated and therefore is not accessible to the English-reading public – until now. The “Gur Arye,” Maharal’s supercommentary on the classic biblical commentator Rashi, is full of surprises, brimming with unique thoughts and diversions into rarely discussed Torah ideas. Kabbala is seamlessly woven into his text.
