This book addresses such questions as: ~ What does God require of people? ~ Does God really want us to have faith? ~ How should we interpret the Bible? ~ How do we deal with seemingly unreasonable midrashic tales? ~ Does God want us to pray? ~ Do Jews believe in angels and demons? ~ Should we accept the truth taught by non-Jews? ~ Is sin a harmful emotion?

More About Israel Drazin

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Israel Drazin is the author of seven books, five of which are on Targum Onkelos. He was the first scholar to recognize that the Targum took hundreds of items from the Tannaitic Midrashim- those that were edited around 400 C.E.- and even incorporated many words found in these Midrashim in his translation. He was able, therefore, to date the Targum Onkelos around 400 C.E., a period much later than is widely accepted, because of the Targum's reliance upon these Midrashim. Stanley M. Wagner is Rabbi Emeritus of The Beth HaMedrosh HaGadol-Beth Joseph Congregation in Denver, Colorado; Professor Emeritus at the University of Denver and Founding Director and Director Emeritus of its Center for Judaic Studies; and Founding Director and Director Emeritus of the Mizel Museum in Denver. He wrote, edited, or co-edited four volumes, A Piece of My Mind, Traditions of the American Jew, Great Confrontations in Jewish History and Great Schisms in Jewish History and was General Editor of a six volume ser

Israel Drazin was born in 1935.
