In the great body of Jewish literature there are many incredibly fascinating (but relatively unknown) curiosities, strange facts, unusual statements and oddities that have accumulated over Judaism s illustrious history. Why does Hebrew go from right to left? Are there Jewish remedies for toothaches and nose bleeds that are found in the Talmud? Are there Chinese Jews and why do so many Jews frequent Chinese restaurants. How do the ancient rabbis interpret dreams? The answers to these and many other questions are presented in this extraordinary collection of fascinating facts, with entries from the Bible, Talmud and Codes. Written by Rabbi Ron Isaacs, (a.k.a. the teaching rabbi ), prolific author and congregational rabbi, he has now wandered off the beaten track of the Jewish tradition in order to find these unusual facts and little known insights. There is something that will inform and surprise the reader on almost every page.
