Talmud Quotations

In my tradition, one must wait until one has learned a lot of Bible and Talmud and the Prophets to handle mysticism. This isn't instant coffee. There is no instant mysticism.
Elie Wiesel

Michel Onfray

I wanted to write a commentary on the Bible, to write about the Talmud, about celebration, about the great eternal subjects: love and happiness.
Elie Wiesel

If you study the Talmud you please God even more than you do by praying or fasting.
Abraham Cahan

Simon Schama
