"A number of times over the years I have mentioned to Rabbi Steinsaltz that in his lectures, interviews, and writings, there are always such wonderful 'gems' embedded within the transcripts and essays, and I find myself repeating these 'gems' to people. 'Perhaps not gems,' he responds. 'Maybe pebbles.'"—From the Introduction Internationally acclaimed Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz is considered to be one of the most brilliant and influential rabbis of our time. He has been lauded by Time magazine as a "once-in-a-millennium scholar" and by Ted Koppel of Nightline as "one of the very few wise men that I've ever met." Arthur Kurzweil—himself a Jewish scholar, author, teacher, publisher, and a longtime disciple of Rabbi Steinsaltz—has gathered in one place a collection of "pebbles" of wisdom from Rabbi Steinsaltz. This wonderful audio book is filled with wisdom from more than thirty years of Rabbi Steinsaltz's lectures, writings, interviews, conversations, and reflections. Pebbles of Wisdom includes Rabbi Steinsaltz's thoughts on the big topics of life including the meaning of happiness, the search for the purpose of one's life, the point of suffering, discovering oneself, dangers along the spiritual path, the process of transforming oneself, and the challenges of faith.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Steinsaltz is a genius of the highest order—the sort of mind that comes around only every couple of thousand years.” Newsweek
“[Steinsaltz has] a searing wit and is also a man for all seasons—as well versed in fundamental Jewish texts as he is in modern literature and scientific studies.” Los Angeles Times
“The scope of Steinsaltz's work can only be compared to Rashi's [the great medieval commentator]. He has revolutionized the way the Talmud is studied. His commentaries will live for centuries.” Washington Post
