Booklists: The Midrash Says series

 "The rich history and lessons from our Avos and Imahos, the Shevatim and beyond, became alive through the clear translation of midrashim"

 

Summer reading time might be winding down, but the end of the season still brings along its own relaxed pace, and a bit more time and tranquility to linger over a good book. While the sun is out and shining, we asked prominent readers for their favorite book choices, receiving some surprise answers and unexpected selections:

I vividly recall those Shabbos days when I would literally soak up the words of the original The Midrash Says series. The rich history and lessons from our Avos and Imahos, the Shevatim and beyond, became alive through the clear translation of midrashim. As my grandfather Rav Mordechai Gifter ztz”l would often would say, only through ‘zechor yemos olam,’ remembering the past, can one fulfill ‘binu shenos dor vador,’ understand what transpires around us in the present through the generations. It’s certainly coming in handy as of late.”
