Item Description...
Aimed at high school students, A Taste of Text: An Introduction to Talmud and Midrash is the perfect introduction to the study of Jewish text. Rabbi Ronald H. Isaacs guides students in reading, investigating, and questioning the Talmud and the Midrash. Using many of his favorite ethical texts, the author addresses sixteen topics of religious and personal importance. The subjects range from the value of friendship to protecting and repairing the Earth. Each chapter begins with a talmudic or midrashic tale, followed by four additional sections. The first provides background information on the tale, helping to explain the morals and ethical lessons. In the next section, Jewish views on the topic are presented and expanded upon. The third section is a collection of quotes from various Jewish texts and rabbinic authorities throughout history that relate to the topic. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions that encourage further study and discussion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great resource for teaching  Dec 21, 2007
"A Taste" is a perfect title for this series. I am fairly knowledeagble in Talmudic materials, and I have been able to use A Taste as a resource for my 11 year old son (public school student) to get a sample of Talmudic materials, which we have then used to faciliate great discussions of Jewish concepts. The interplay between the chosen text and the supplementary materials is very helpful as it produces terrific fodder for these discussion. On the down side, I found that many (but not all) of the suggested discussion questions were too superficial and did not take advantage of the potential found in the various grouping of quotes.

This book is designed to be a discussion tool for a teacher or knowledgeable parent with a student or a class of students. I am not sure if this tool would work for just a child alone or a parent without at least some background in Talmudic learning (there is no need for Hebrew or Aramaic reading ability). I would recommend this for supplementary Religous School classes from 6 to 8th grade, particularly for pre-bar/bat mitzvah students. Also, if used by the right teacher, this book would be a great tool in a supplementary jewish education setting teaching high schoolers as well.
An Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash   Sep 10, 2004
A Taste Of Text: An Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash is another title intended for a high school audience but which reaches into adult realms with its strong subject and presentation. While the Talmud and midrashic literature have been central to Jewish ethics and culture, many are unfamiliar with their most basic lessons. Rabbit Ronald Isaacs, spiritual leader of Temple sholom in Bridgewater NJ, here provides the questions and text passages which bring these classics to life and enables students to question texts based on real-life concerns.
