RaSHI, Rabbi Shlomo son of Isaac (1040–1105).
Born in Troyes, France, and is most well known for his running commentary on the Talmud and TaNaKH. In his commentary on the TaNaKH, he usually selected and condensed earlier Rabbinic understandings of the text. His commentary was the first published Jewish work, even before the TaNaKH itself. His commentary is studied along with the TaNaKH in traditional communities down to today.
