    The greatest contemporary Kabbalists, Rav Yehuda Ashlag, and his son and successor, Rav Baruch Ashlag, provide valid answers to life's most fundamental question: What is the meaning of my life?

  • Law and Narrative in the Bible and in Neighbouring Ancient Culturesby Klaus-Peter Adam; Friedrich Avemarie; Dorit Felsch; Nili Wazana

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 80.16

    Law is not only conveyed in codified clauses; it is often featured as a pivotal topic in literary texts. Existing legal relationships can determine the historical or the fictive setting of a drama or a plot, narratives can propagate laws or demonstrate their inherent problems. Literature can be used as an integral part of a strategy to implement legally... more...

  • Migrating Talesby Richard Kalmin

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 65.00

    Migrating Tales situates the Babylonian Talmud, or Bavli, in its cultural context by reading several rich rabbinic stories against the background of Greek, Syriac, Arabic, Persian, and Mesopotamian literature of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages, much of it Christian in origin. In this nuanced work, Richard Kalmin argues that non-Jewish literature... more...

  • The Mind of the Talmudby David Kraemer

    Oxford University Press, USA 1990; US$ 149.99

    This critical study traces the development of the literary forms and conventions of the Babylonian Talmud, or Bavli, analyzing those forms as expressions of emergent rabbinic ideology. The Bavli, which evolved between the third and sixth centuries in Sasanian Iran (Babylonia), is the most comprehensive of all documents produced by rabbinic Jews in... more...

  • A Mirror of Rabbinic Hermeneuticsby Giuseppe Veltri

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    Rabbinic hermeneutics in ancient Judaism reflects this multifaceted world of the text and of reality, seen as a world of reference worth commentary. As a mirror, it includes this world but perhaps also falsifies reality, adapting it to one's own aims and necessities. This book explores the rabbinic concern with texts as the main area of... more...

  • Mishnah and the Social Formation of the Early Rabbinic Guildby Jack N. Lightstone; Vernon K. Robbins

    Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2006; US$ 42.95

    Where do the origins of the rabbinic movement lie, and how might evidence from the early rabbinic literature be made to reveal those origins? In order to shed light on the early social formation of the rabbinic guild of masters, Lightstone brings the theoretical and methodological insights of socio-rhetorical analysis to examine Mishnah, the... more...

  • Origins of the Kabbalahby Gershom Gerhard Scholem; Allan Arkush

    Princeton University Press 1991; US$ 46.00

    One of the most important scholars of our century, Gershom Scholem (1897-1982) opened up a once esoteric world of Jewish mysticism, the Kabbalah, to concerned students of religion. The Kabbalah is a rich tradition of repeated attempts to achieve and portray direct experiences of God: its twelfth-and thirteenth-century beginnings in southern France... more...
