Sefer Katan Ve’Gadol (ספר קטן וגדול)


A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Explanations…
With Sources That Have Not Been Published In Hundreds of Years…

Sefer Katan V’Gadol is a collection of explanations for the small and large letters found throughout the Tanach. You may be familiar with the large letter “Bet” in the beginning of the Torah in the word “Breishit” of “In the Beginning” or the small letter “Aleph” in the word “Vayikrah” in the beginning of “Leviticus” and the small and big letters in the names of Haman’s sons in the Megilat Esther.

This book collects and traces the history of the approaches to interpreting these and many other unusual letters. Some of the material is taken from manuscripts that have not been published for hundreds of years.
