Reviews

"Takes us on a wonderful odyssey ... chock full of tantalizing textual nuggets which demonstrate Abrams' erudition and breadth of knowledge. She ... makes the essential aspects accessible to each and every [reader]."
--Dr. Norman J. Cohen, professor of midrash, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion; author, Masking and Unmasking Ourselves: Interpreting Biblical Texts on
Clothing and Identity
and The Way Into Torah

"Comprehensive and clear.... Provides an understanding of a generally neglected but absolutely crucial and foundational text of the Jewish people. [The book] deserves to be read and placed on the shelf of every Jewish and religious studies library."
--Rabbi David Ellenson, president, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion

"A joyful romp through the foreign fields of the Talmud Yerushalmi. Master teacher Rabbi Judith Abrams leads readers dancing through the Talmud texts. Brava on a wonderful introduction to a difficult text."
--Rabbi Burton L. Visotzky, Appleman Professor of Midrash and Interreligious Studies, The Jewish Theological Seminary; author, Sage Tales: Wisdom and Wonder from the Rabbis of the Talmud

"Does a great service by introducing the Jerusalem Talmud to the English-speaking public. Allows the reader to get a taste of the Jerusalem Talmud by contrasting it primarily to the Babylonian Talmud without our having to completely agree with all her views. Well done!"
--Rabbi Joseph Radinsky, rabbi emeritus, United Orthodox Synagogues

"Presents Yerushalmi texts that reflect many of the interests of this 'other Talmud' in a clear and extremely engaging manner."
--Rabbi Michael Chernick, PhD, Deutsch Professor of Jewish Jurisprudence and Social Justice, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion; author, A Great Voice That Did Not Cease
