Ein Yaakov: The Ethical and Inspirational Teachings of the Talmud
Jason Aronson, Incorporated, Oct 1, 1999 - Religion - 824 pages
This is the only complete English translation of the classic Jewish text known as Ein Yaakov.
Ein Yaakov is a collection of all the agaddah (the non-legal) material of the Talmud, compiled by Rabbi Yaakov ibn Chaviv, the fifteenth century talmudist. Scattered among the more than 2,700 pages of the Talmud, aggadah focuses on the ethical and inspirational aspects of the Torah way of life. Through a wealth of homilies, anecdotes, allegories, pithy sayings, and interpretations of biblical verses, it has been said that the aggadah brings you closer to God and his Torah.
