The Song of Songs, known in Hebrew as Shir HaShirim, is a biblical collection of erotic love poetry, a dialogue between two lovers. It was seen by the Rabbis, however, as a metaphor for the greatest love story of all, that between God and the people Israel.

Kravitz and Olitzky's original translation tries to recapture for the modern reader the beauty of the Divine love story that the Rabbis found in the text. Using commentary from Rashi, Ibn Ezra, Gersonides, and others, as well as insights from related contemporary teachings, the line-by-line translation and commentary breathes new life into the traditional rabbinic reading of this unique text.
