Mendelssohn and the Biur
I recently attended a lecture on Moses Mendelssohn and his translation/commentary on the Torah. I summarized it for another list, and thought I'd post a pointer to the summary here. The basic idea is that Mendelssohn composed his translation for a variety of reasons, for which he was rightly and wrongly criticized.
