Midrash Tanchuma and Torah Study


I am beginning to study the Torah and the Midrash Tanchuma seems very difficult to understand.

Is there any book to helps me understand it?

Please advise and thank you.



  1. I am not sure why anyone would start studying Torah with the Midrash Tanchuma. Midrash Tanchuma is really a text for advanced students. The best place to begin is by studying the the Chumash with the commentary of Rashi. The ArtScroll text for this is highly recommended.
