Description

The first complete English translation of the Hebrew Classic Sefer Ha-Aggadah brings to the English-speaking world the greatest and best-loved anthology of the classical Rabbinic literature ever compiled. First published in Odessa in 1908-11, it was recognized immediately as a master work in its own right. The Hebrew poet Hayim Nahman Bialik and the renowned editor Yehoshua Hana Ravnitzky, the architects of this masterful compendium, selected hundreds of texts from Talmud and midrashic literature and arranged them thematically, in order to provide their contemporaries with easy access to the national literary heritage of the Jewish people.
