What do the great Jewish writings of the last 3,500 years tell us about all the vital questions about our lives? Rabbi Joseph Telushkin has devoted his life to the search for answers within the teachings of Judaism. In Jewish Wisdom, Rabbi Telushkin weaves together a tapestry of stories from the Bible and Talmud, and the insights of Jewish commentators and writers. Accompanying this extraordinary compliation is Telushkins compelling commentary, which reveals how these texts continue to instruct and challenge Jews - and all people concerned with leading ethical lives - today. As he discusses these texts, Rabbi Telushkin addresses issues of fundamental interest to modern readers: how to live with honesty and integrity in an often dishonest world; how to care for the sick and dying; and more. The reader will find extended sections illuminating Jewish perspectives on sex, romance, and marriage, how to use language ethically, and much more.

Mishnah  A New TranslationMishnah A New Translation

THE MISHNAH is the written version of the Jewish Oral Law as it existed in the first several centuries following the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in the first century. It is the basis of the Talmud (which is the Mishnah plus Rabbinic commentary on it). Formulated toward the end of the 2nd century A.D., it stands beside the Hebrew Bible as one of the two holy books upon which Judaism, for the past 19 hundred years, has been constructed. Neusner's translation is different from other translations, (such as stock #5402X), in that it is a more literal translation of the Aramaic. Due to the way Neusner translated this volume, it is a bit more difficult to understand than #5402X. Customers should be warned that although the Mishnah is very interesting reading, it can be confusing due to the form in which the work is set up.
