Blogging the Aggadah

This entry was posted in Texts on by .

The Aggadah is the non-Jewish Law-intensive part of the Talmud–that is, the part with all the cool stories and lasers shooting out of people’s beards. Our friend BZ writes on his blog that, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Hayim Nachman Bialik and Yehoshua Ravnitsky’s compilation of their favorite aggadot, people will be starting a two-year effort to read a portion of the book every day….and, no surprise, there’s an official accompanying blog, Sefer Ha-Bloggadah.

Yes, we know–some of you are doing Daf Yomi, taking seven and a half years to read the whole Talmud. But this is a massive effort, too. And the Bloggadah kids are more than prepared, with a daily schedule, a launch party, and the best discounts on the book…and, oh yeah, their own blog.

See you there.
