Rabbi Stanley M. Wagner, of blessed memory
Founding Director, Emeritus
News: Rabbi Wagner is co-author of the five-volume Onkelos on the Torah: Understanding the Bible Text (Gefen Publishing House, Jerusalem/New York) with Rabbi Dr. Israel Drazin.
Selected materials from their work were incorporated into the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations' new and increasingly popular Shnayim Mikra program, in which each weekly portion of the Torah's current book is studied online. The goal of integrating these materials is to encourage people to increase their study of Onkelos, an important Bible commentator and translator.
In 2010, Rabbi Stanley Wagner published an essay on Onkelos, "Translation, Midrash, and Commentary Through the Eyes of Onkelos," The Jewish Bible Quarterly, volume 38, number 3, 151, July-September 2010, pp. 191-201.
