One of the best-loved anthologies of Rabbinic lore, The Book of Legends (Sefer Ha-Aggadah) was compiled by the Hebrew poet laureate Hayim Nahman Bialik and the noted Hebrew editor and publisher Yehoshua Hana Ravnitzky. Aggadah is the term for the nonlegal portions of the Talmud and Midrash, or, more loosely, legends. This treasury of aggadic legends, culled from these classic Jewish texts and arranged by theme, is a captivating melange of fantasy, satire, wisdom, and piety. Here we find a broad spectrum of Jewish literary inventiveness on such topics as biblical characters and national heroes, the wisdom of the Rabbinic sages, the role of Israel and the nations, G-d, good and evil, the human being and society, and the world of nature.

  • Edited by Hayim N. Bialik and Yehoshua H. Ravnitzky
  • Translated by: William G. Braude
  • (896 Pages)Publisher: Pantheon, 1992
