Heads and Tales: Stories of the Sages to Enlighten Our Minds
Rabbi Edwin Goldberg's new book Heads and Tales: Stories from the Sages to Enlighten our Minds brings age-old tales to life once more. Designed as an introduction to the art of reading rabbinic literature, Heads and Tales opens the door to the creative genius of the rabbis of long ago.
Using this carefully selected collection of stories, Heads and Tales will help instill a love of Jewish stories, while also helping students gain the skills needed to be critical readers of these traditional stories. In addition, these stories demonstrate that the issues that concerned our ancestors in past generations are similar or are the same as those that concern us today. The tales found in the book, while they may have been written in years gone by, remain most relevant.
Perfect introduction to traditional text study
Texts provided in both Hebrew and English
Discussion questions included
Insightful commentary on each story
Well-suited for high school or adult education classes
More than the centerpiece of Purim celebrations, Esther is unique in the biblical canon, and raises as many questions as it reveals answers. It is a rich source for text study, at Purim and throughout the year.
