  • Up Close: August 18, 2014

    This week on Up Close, we look at major Jewish sages, past and present.

    First, renowned scholar, commentator and translator Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz speaks about his work on the Talmud and his book about the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, My Rebbe. Rabbi Steinsaltz is the author of what may well become the most-read commentary on the Talmud in its history, the Koren Talmud, and is a popularizer of the text known for his erudition.

    Then, Dr. Ronald Eisenberg, a physician specializing in radiology, discusses how a side-gig of sorts in digging deep into Jewish studies has yielded his encyclopedic work on Essential Figures in Jewish Scholarship.
