Reviews

"Rosen's wise and heartfelt book is a home page with links to infinity." --Anne Fadiman, author of Ex Libris

"The Talmud and the Internet is a lyrical meditation about the quest to illuminate what has come before us in order to live wisely...(it) is a journey, not only between two worlds but among the great questions and the great souls who have considered life's purposes amid often horrifying evidence." --Nessa Rapoport, Los Angeles Times

"We are moved and enlightened...Others have raised the felt contradictions between the tragic and luminous Jewish heritage and the ahistorical comforts and complacencies of American life. Few have managed to do so with such a mix of the searching, the modest and...with such charm." --Richard Eder, The New York Times
