Ruth Calderon has electrified the Jewish world with her teachings of Talmudic texts. In this volume, her first to appear in English, she offers a fascinating window into some of the liveliest and most colorful stories in the Talmud.
This multi-volume series by Rabbi Dr. Binyamin Lau offers fresh perspectives on the individual characters of the sages, the historical contexts in which they lived, and the creativity they brought to the pursuit of Jewish wisdom. Volume II covers the period from Yavne to the Bar Kokhba Revolt. Volume III picks up after the Bar Kokhba Revolt and continues through Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi. Volume IV, the last volume in the series, covers the completion of the Mishna and the creation of the Talmud.
