Reviews


"This is a fascinating book about Jewish society in the medieval and early modern era written through the prism of rabbinic sermons and Jewish responsum by one of the preeminent scholars of these mediums. Written clearly, it is accessible to the scholar and the interested general reader." -- Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews (May/June 2015)
