The Book of Legends : Sefer Ha-Aggadah : Legends from the Talmud and Midrash

Review by Jonina Duker on November 2, 2010

What do Covenant Award winner Rivy Poupko Kletenik and I have in common? Well, yes, of course we are both from Pittsburgh. In addition to that, we both picked The Book of Legends as "the" book to have if cast away on a desert island.
This book is an extraordinary resource for understanding the Bible, midrash, Jewish values, and more. The indexes in the back are invaluable guides to finding just the right rabbinic text for the matter of the moment.
