Love Tales from the Talmud
Formerly URJ Press #148050
Many people see the Talmud as nothing more than a dry compendium of legal opinions, but in fact the Talmud represents a rich repository of literature encompassing all aspects of the world of the great Rabbinic Sages. Rabbi Edwin Goldberg, author of Swords and Plowshares: Jewish Views of War and Peace and Heads and Tales: Stories of the Sages to Enlighten Our Minds, presents a window into this world in Love Tales from the Talmud. Featuring original texts, translations, commentary, and study questions, this accessible introduction to the study of Rabbinic literature explores classic Jewish wisdom on love and relationships.
