Sages of the Talmud is a necessary book for every person, lay and scholar alike, who is interested in Talmud and Jewish history because it presents important data about the Talmudic sages in both an informative and enjoyable manner. Since the Talmud contains the views of rabbis who lived over a period of many centuries and since the Talmud mentions the teachings of these rabbis in its text in close proximity, many readers might mistakenly imagine that the sages knew one another. Judovits places the sages in the century in which they lived and describes the unique historical and social environments that prevailed in the days of each one. In addition, readers will find interesting revelations about the character traits of each sage and their accomplishments. --Rabbi Dr. Israel Drazin, author of Maimonides: The Exceptional Mind and co-author of Onkelos on the Torah

English-speaking students of rabbinic literature will be grateful for this comprehensive, easy-to-use guide, Sages of the Talmud. Mordechai Judovits, student of the Talmud, has produced an eminently useful reference tool for anyone interested in the biographies, maxims and historical context of the ancient rabbis whose teachings shaped Rabbinic Judaism. --Jonathan D. Sarna, Joseph H. & Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History, Brandeis University, author of American Judaism: A History
