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.
