Legends Of The Jews (Hebrew)

Louis Ginzberg’s classic work, Legends of the Jews, presents the traditions of Biblical lore that are preserved in Second Temple and Rabbinic Literature. The six volumes that comprise this work cover the period from Creation of the World to the Return to Zion. The book encompasses legends taken from more than 60 different compositions, presented as one continuous story. The real treasure of the work is found in Ginzberg’s notes to each chapter. The Hebrew edition of this work has been out of print for many years. The new edition in Hebrew is a facsimile of the original Hebrew edition with an introduction to the life of Louis Ginzberg by Prof. David Golinkin, and an introduction to the book by Prof. Avigdor Shinan. The important innovation found in this new edition is the Subject Index. This new Hebrew edition is a true celebration for all lovers of Aggadic Literature
