You will surely enjoy the exhilaration of studying the inspirational Aggadah and you will find it very rewarding. This program is ideal for students, teachers, rabbis, or anyone who cherishes the legacy of Aggadic literature and its importance.

    What is the 'Aggadah'?

    The Aggadah consists of the inspirational and ethical teachings of the Talmud. These legends and stories illustrate the character of the great Rabbinic Sages. The Rabbis come alive as they expound, exhort, encourage the downtrodden, negotiate with Roman emperors and generals, and help the poor, sick and oppressed. These stories extend to every sphere of life, from ethics to astronomy, mysticism to marriage, and medicine. These anecdotes show that the Sages were not just thinkers and philosophers but saintly individuals whose qualities we should emulate.

    About the Translator: Avraham Yaakov Finkel was born in Basel, Switzerland and lived in the Hague, Netherlands until 1942, when he was deported to Bergen-Belsen by the Nazis.
