Description

From the author of Jewish Literacy, now comes Jewish Wisdom, which illuminates every aspect of human life with perfectly chosen passages from the great Jewish writings, both ancient and modern. What distinguishes this book from previously published collections of Jewish teachings and quotations is Rabbi Telushkin's insightful commentary that not only sets these texts in historical perspective but explains why they remain vitally important, and challenging, to Jews today. Organized by subject, Jewish Wisdom is a guide and commentary to the most important texts of Judaism, including all biblical sources and the Talmud, as well as hundreds of rabbinical commentaries and both ancient and modern religious and secular writings, from Hillel and Maimonides to Isaac Bashevis Singer and Elie Wiesel. As he discusses these texts, Rabbi Telushkin addresses issues of vital interest to all Jewish readers, including relations between people in a complicated world, individuals and their quest for meaning, what God wants from his people, and Jewish values as they confront the Holocaust, Zionism, and the modern Jewish experience.
