    The authors reached back into history to understand the reasons and methods brilliant rabbis and Talmudic scholars abandoned the Holy Land, both physically and spiritually, to settle in what came to be known as the lands of the Diaspora. This dramatic exodus was contrary to the biblical injunction that all Jews must live in the land of Israel. The Battle of the Two Talmuds explains in great detail how the Babylonian scholars created their own interpretation of the Torah that grew to take precedence over that of the Jerusalem scholars. This book shows that all human beings are subject in various ways to power, glory, and guilt.

    Jacobus says: "Should Jews return to the Holy Land?"
    "Accurate, unbiased and very informative"

    What did you love best about Battle of the Two Talmuds?

    At first i was afraid this was going to be a scholarly, semi-atheist / reform approach to the talmud, but the quality is great. It's also very informative and has plenty of tales to keep you entertained.

    Now about the subject matter.... it is indeed an attractive theory.

    Worth a listen even for the orthodox (like myself)!
