A Vast Reservoir of Jewish Thought and Wisdom!

Davka presents the Ein Yaakov-the famous collection of all the Aggadic material of the Talmud originally compiled by Rabbi Jacob ben Solomon ibn Habib-in a modern, up-to-date English translation of this monumental Jewish classic, complete with the original Hebrew text.

The Ein Yaakov on CD-ROM features lightning-fast search capabilities, printing, pasting, and copying, and simultaneous scrolling text display of the Hebrew and English.

It's easy to quickly open up any tractate, browse the English text, link to the original Hebrew, and even print them, side by side, in two columns. You can search for words and phrases, and get results-fast! And the program makes it easy to copy text to your favorite word processors, from DavkaWriter to Microsoft Word.

The Ein Yaakov on CD-ROM will be a marvelous addition to your Judaic software library. You will surely enjoy the exhilaration of learning Aggadah, the inspirational part of the Talmud, and you will feel richly rewarded by it. It is ideal for students, teachers, rabbis-for anyone who cherishes the legacy of Aggadic literature and its importance.

What is the 'Aggadah'?

The Aggadah consists of the non-legal, inspirational and ethical teachings from the Talmud. The legends and stories of the Talmud illustrate the character of the great rabbinic Sages. The rabbis are vibrantly alive as they expound, exhort, encourage the downtrodden, negotiate with Roman emperors and generals, and help the poor, the sick and the oppressed. Every sphere of life is touched upon, from ethics to astronomy, from mysticism to marriage to medicine. These anecdotes are intended to show that the Sages were not just thinkers and philosophers but saintly individuals whose qualities we should try to emulate.

About the Translator: Avraham Yaakov Finkel was born in Basel, Switzerland and lived in the Hague, Netherlands until 1942 when he was deported to Bergen-Belsen by the Nazis. He is the author of a number of significant volumes including, The Essential Maimonides, the Great Chasidic Masters, and The Responsa Anthology.
