The classic tales of the Jewish sages in the Talmud

defined Judaism then and help us find our way even

today. In this highly accessible collection of funny, wise

and poignant narratives, master teacher Burt Visotzky

leads the reader through stories of the Rabbis who lived

in the first generations following the destruction of the

Jerusalem Temple in 70 CE. Opening up these sage

tales to the modern reader, Visotzky illustrates how

these ancient stories illuminate modern life's most

pressing issues:

What is the good way to choose in life?

How a family copes with death

How a people copes with tragedy (the

destruction of Jerusalem, but think 9/11)

How we experience God

How we find joy

For people of all faiths and all backgrounds, this book

guides readers through the accumulated wisdom of a

millennium of wise narrative. Organized in 22 engaging

chapters one for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet

the book also includes a detailed glossary, a guide to the

rabbis and other characters in the stories, the complete

texts, the original sources, and suggestions for further

reading.
