Reading Between the Lines
New Stories from the Bible
Selected and edited with Rabbi David Katz
For centuries the Jewish people have sought to uncover all of the wisdom of the Torah by imaging the subtext of every verse. Known as midrashim, these stories of explanation were first created by rabbis more than 1,500 years ago. Today, people are still finding new meanings in the ancient texts. In Reading Between the Lines, contemporary writers explore both current and traditional themes through the perspective of major characters and episodes from the Hebrew Bible.
