Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his new book, " ...and turn it again," author Simeon Maslin introduces his readers to a first-century sage who taught: "Turn it and turn it again, for everything is in it." That ancient sage was referring to Hebrew Scripture, and Maslin continues the time-honored rabbinic process of turning those sacred verses, turning them yet again, and finding in them inspiring, poignant, and often humorous lessons for our day.

In praise of

."..and turn it again"

Rabbi Maslin is one of the most gifted practitioners of the rabbinic art of connecting ancient texts and modern concerns. His vignettes shimmer with insight, humor and compassion for the human condition. - Rabbi Harold Kushner, author, When Bad Things Happen to Good PeopleBy spinning and respinning tales from our ancient texts and connecting them to the real issues of our lives, Maslin links us to our people, our past, and our God. This book is a treasure by one of the great teachers of our generation. - Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, President, Union for Reform Judaism In this remarkably insightful collection, Rabbi Maslin brilliantly converts his favorite biblical verses into highly fluent and pleasurable prose to stimulate and challenge his readers. This is the ageless rabbinic art of teaching practiced to perfection, a significant addition to the Jewish exegetical tradition. - Prof. David Ruderman, Director, Center for Advanced Jewish Studies, U. of Penn.
