Publisher's Summary

"A number of times over the years I have mentioned to Rabbi Steinsaltz that in his lectures, interviews, and writings, there are always such wonderful 'gems' embedded within the transcripts and essays, and I find myself repeating these 'gems' to people. 'Perhaps not gems,' he responds. 'Maybe pebbles.'"
—From the Introduction

Internationally acclaimed Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz is considered to be one of the most brilliant and influential rabbis of our time. He has been lauded by Time magazine as a "once-in-a-millennium scholar" and by Ted Koppel of Nightline as "one of the very few wise men that I've ever met."

Arthur Kurzweil—himself a Jewish scholar, author, teacher, publisher, and a longtime disciple of Rabbi Steinsaltz—has gathered in one place a collection of "pebbles" of wisdom from Rabbi Steinsaltz. This wonderful audiobook is filled with wisdom from more than 30 years of Rabbi Steinsaltz's lectures, writings, interviews, conversations, and reflections.

Pebbles of Wisdom includes Rabbi Steinsaltz's thoughts on the big topics of life, including the meaning of happiness, the search for the purpose of one's life, the point of suffering, discovering oneself, dangers along the spiritual path, the process of transforming oneself, and the challenges of faith.

What the Critics Say

"Steinsaltz is a genius of the highest order—the sort of mind that comes around only every couple of thousand years." (Newsweek)

"[Steinsaltz has] a searing wit and is also a man for all seasons—as well versed in fundamental Jewish texts as he is in modern literature and scientific studies." (Los Angeles Times)

"The scope of Steinsaltz's work can only be compared to Rashi's [the great medieval commentator]. He has revolutionized the way the Talmud is studied. His commentaries will live for centuries." (Washington Post)

    Addicted to reading traditional books. Overwhelmed by backlog of books to read. If it's early Americana then I want it.

    "Wisdom pure and simple"
    Would you listen to Pebbles of Wisdom from Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz again? Why?

    This book will be listened to again and again. It does not read like a novel, so don't expect it. Having said that, this is a non-stop collection of pure wisdom. This book will do your soul well.

    "Wished I would have listened to this one sooner..."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book is all over the place and does not do a good job in discriminating the information.


    What could Adin Steinsaltz and Arthur Kurzwell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Organization and keep to the point in each chapter.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Steve Blane?

    Sure

    "Very bad..."

    for the first time in my life i slept while listening to a book. The author appears to have picked up rags from different places and trying to make a cloth to wear out of that. Very disappointing...
