Torah Commentary

The Nerd has had an email list for a number of years. He sends out commentary daily on the Torah in plain text format (because his readers appreciate being able to easily read it on their phones at work while the boss isn’t looking). The full commentaries on the books of Torah, refined year by year on the email list, is posted here.

The Nerd writes under the pseudonym Derek Leman. Believe what you will about authorship. He published his commentary on the Torah here free for the taking. He reportedly plans to improve this commentary for two more years, in the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 Torah reading cycles. He may publish them in paper and eBook format in 2020.

New (but not finished) Torah Commentary

During the 2017 – 2018 Torah year (October to October), the Nerd is completely updating his Torah commentary. You can find the new and not yet finished pages here.
