Fabulous at pulling together many stories we've heard and many rabbis names. It makes Jewish history come alive and in perfect chronological order. I'm buying this for gifts. Every middle school student should read this book.
Among the very best books I have ever read.Everyone should read this book.
Rabbi Marcus Lehman has put together the most through biographies in Jewish literature. He also makes the heroes of his stories very real, believable by blending secular history into the stories of Tzaddikim like Rabbi Akiva.
I've read this book to my sixth graders and I've suggested it for adults and everyone absolutely loves the stories, the incredible amount of information about Jewish laws and customs that are sprinkled throughout the book. But most of all the style of writing draws the reader in and creates a real connection to the figures in the book.
I cannot say enough about this work. It is just brilliant!
This book is one of the most inspiring books I've ever read. It is the biography of one of the greatest Rabbi who's ever lived: Rabbi Akiva.
