Über den Autor
Judith Z. Abrams is a woman with a mission: she wants to bring the beauty of Talmud to as many people, and with as much depth, as possible. To that end, she has published four books on the Talmud (The Talmud for Beginners, volumes I and II, The Women of the Talmud, and with her husband, Dr. Steven A. Abrams, Jewish Parenting: Rabbinic Insights), earned her Ph.D. in rabbinic literature from the Baltimore Hebrew University, and teaches across the country. She is the founder and director of Maqom: A Place for the Spiritually Searching, a school for adult Talmud study where anyone can learn, regardless of their background. She lives in Houston with her husband, Steven, and their three children, Michael, Ruth, and Hannah.
Judith Abrams, author of the highly acclaimed The Talmud for Beginners, Volumes I & II, creates yet another way of making Talmud study easy and accessible for the novice. Rabbi Abrams has chosen to work with the Steinsaltz Edition of the Talmud, edited and with commentary by Adin Steinsaltz, one of the greatest Jewish thinkers of the twentieth century. This volume is a must for both student and teacher.
