By Rabbi Chanoch Gebhard Publisher: Feldheim, 2011
Rav Chanoch Gebhard s Shiurim b Haggados Chazal, first published in Hebrew, has opened a path into the fascinating world of Talmud study for the uninitiated who hunger for a taste of the infinite wisdom embedded in its tales and allegories.
Now, this volume on Tractate Megillah lights up that pathway for the English reader. Chazal delved deeply into the Scripture in this case, Megillas Esther and came up with pearls, revealing its mysteries. Rav Gebhard s lucid explanations of their words make those shining pearls available even to the novice learner who has not yet mastered the skills of Talmudic scholarship. (English)
