About the Author:

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz is a teacher, philosopher and spiritual mentor who has been hailed by Time Magazine as a once-in-a-millennium scholar. Born in Jerusalem in 1937, Rabbi Steinsaltz studied physics and chemistry at the Hebrew University. At the age of 24, he became Israel's youngest school principal. He established a network of schools in Israel and the former Soviet Union, and in 1988, was awarded the Israel Prize--his country's highest honor--for his work in Jewish education. In 1965, Rabbi Steinsaltz embarked on a lifelong mission to make the Talmud accessible to all. He has since translated and developed commentaries on the Talmud in modern Hebrew, English, Russian and French, revolutionizing the study of this central text of Jewish law, ethics, customs and history. In addition, Rabbi Steinsaltz has authored some 60 books and hundreds of articles on subjects ranging from theology to mysticism and social commentary.

Review:

These commentaries comprise a truly great work, which can be of great benefit not only to those who are familiar with Talmudic study and who wish to delve deeper, but also to those who are just beginning to learn, introducing them to the ways of the Torah, and teaching them how to understand and to dive further into the sea of the Talmud. --Rabbi Moshe Feinstein zl

I have just had the pleasant surprise of receiving Masechet Shabbat (Part One) which has been published by [Rabbi Steinsaltz] along with his explanation and so on. Happy the man who sees good fruits from his labors. May he continue in this way and add yet more light, for in the matters of holiness there is always room to add and we have been commanded to add for they are linked to the Holy One who is infinite. May God grant him success, and enable him to improve and to add to this work, for the merit he brings the community supports him in his efforts. --Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe zl
