Publisher Maggid Press
In The Sages, Vol. III: The Galilean Period, Binyamin Lau paints vivid portraits of the some of the most central figures in the Talmud: the disciples of Rabbi Akiva. Featured in every tractate of the Talmud, these charismatic personalities kept Jewish tradition alive after Rabbi Akiva's tragic execution. Profoundly engaging, In The Sages, Vol. III: The Galilean Period addresses questions of communal leadership in times of economic hardship, social inequity, cultural tension, and political struggle, issues entirely relevant to today's socio-political climate.
