We discussed a brief review of the printed text of Rashi's printed commentary on Torah, the various manuscripts of Rashi, the importance of the Lepizig (1) manuscript, the additions and corrections to Rashi's commentary by his students and others, examples of Rashi's own haghos, examples of the changes made to Rashi in the printed text and how that impacts the work and what we actually read today in most standard editions, the best editions of Rashi, and more.
