Product Description

The Books We Learn.
The Books We Love.


Jews and their books are inseparable. Our sefarim have accompanied us for millennia, offering hope, comfort, and, above all, the infinite wisdom of Torah.

In Great Jewish Classics, Rabbi Moshe Bamberger takes us on a fascinating exploration of some of Judaism's most important and beloved holy books. He shares absorbing and often little-known biographical and historical background, legends, stories, and, of course, a short and readable analysis of the contents of each Jewish classic.

And pictures! So many evocative images: A twelfth-century manuscript of Rambam's Mishneh Torah, including his own handwritten edits; the first edition of the Shnei Luchos Habris of the Shelah HaKadosh; a 1939 postcard from Rav Chaim Ozer Grodzensky to the Chazon Ish; a copy of the Kedushas Levi with a heartrending, handwritten postscript written in the Lodz Ghetto by its owner, who later perished in the Holocaust - here is a stunning collection of images that bring these scholars and their contributions to Klal Yisrael to vivid life.

From Rashi to Rav Chaim Soloveitchik, from the Pnei Yehoshua to Rav Ovadia Yosef, from Torah and Talmud commentaries to collections of halachic responsa and works of mussar - Great Jewish Classics introduces us anew to more than 100 classic Jewish books that have molded and guided our people
