Rashbam: Power Pasuk (Emor)

Rashbam’s comments often borrow language from other parts of the Tanakh, weaving together different parts of the tradition. Does he have a favorite pasuk?

Rashbam: Cloud Cover (Acharei Mot)

When the high priest enters the Holy Space on Yom Kippur, he enters into danger. How does burning incense provide cover from the threat of death?

Rashbam: Detached (Tazria)

A type of skin affliction called netek. Rashbam suggests it means disconnection, specifically hair detaching. A story from Vayikra Rabbah saves the day.
