Overview

The Wisdom of the Talmud: A Thousand Years of Jewish Thought by Ben Zion Bokser

Although the foremost scripture of the Jewish faith is the Hebrew Bible, ancient Israel embraced laws and customs passed down for centuries through the oral tradition. The Talmud represents the ancient rabbis' dedication to preserving these unwritten laws, which were the heart of the Jewish tradition. The present work attempts to clarify the relationship between the Bible and The Talmud, and convey to the reader new to Judaism the true spirit of The Talmud.
